FLASHBACK - Livni in 2007: Abbas Is Not a Partner For Peace

Leaked documents published on WikiLeaks have revealed that Livni herself in the years 2006-2007 expressed doubts over the PA's ability to make peace, and raised concerns of Abbas as a peace partner.

“Livni told Senators [John] Kerry and [Christopher] Dodd that she doubted that a final status agreement could be reached with Abu Mazen [Abbas], and therefore the emphasis should be on reforming Fatah so that it could beat Hamas at the polls,” according to a cable sent by former U.S. envoy Richard Jones.

Another Document quotes Livni saying it would be impossible to settle the conflict with Abbas.
