Abbas to Kerry: Peres, Livni and Herzog misled you

DEBKAfile’s Washington and Ramallah sources report that the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas gave the following message to US Secretary of State John Kerry, during their ongoing private talks: [ex-President] Peres, Livni and Herzog [partners at heads of the opposition left-wing Labor] have misled you. A UN Security Council vote on a resolution setting a deadline for Palestinian statehood will not boost the right-wing parties’ chances of an election win, as they maintained, but rather the left, which badly needs a leg up.

Abbas said that,according to his reading of Israel’s political map, the right wing is set to come out ahead of the opposition in the March 17 vote and Binyamin Netanyahu destined for another term as prime minister.
