|New Secretary of State John F. Kerry is signaling an early push to rekindle Middle East peace talks, making lengthy telephone calls to the Israeli and Palestinian leaders even before starting work at the State Department on Monday. Arriving for his first day in an office he has long coveted, Kerry told State Department employees that they have a fortunate mission. He promised during his confirmation hearing last month that he would also bring new diplomatic focus to the stalled effort to create an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel.|
