Abbas is already ridiculed by his own people as not their representative because he and his corrupt Fatah-PLO lost the last election. There is no chance that Abbas can deliver on "land-for-peace" because he doesn't control Hamas or Gaza, so negotiating with him is a waste of time. And now we see that he actually is controlled entirely by the Arab League - 90% of whose members are at war with Israel - has to ask permission for everything, follow their orders, call off peace talks because they order him to. So nothing has changed since 1947, the "Palestinian Arabs" are manipulated by other Arab states who want to fight wars at their expense. This is not a "peace partner". For the record, Abbas already agreed to indirect talks in exchange for Bibi's "partial freeze", which never included Jerusalem. So Arab League is now trying to squeeze out of Israel a freeze on Jerusalem home-building as well, and now for only "indirect talks". More phony something-for-nothing "negotiating" won't work.
