Hatnua Party head Tzipi Livni predicted on Monday that the Palestinian bid for a binding UN Security Council resolution forcing an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank would fail.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "thinks he has backed us into a corner and we will fold," she said.
"Let it be clear: they won't get what they want,” Livni said. “The Palestinian proposal won't be accepted. The world will reject this text. And, if necessary, the US will use its veto power."
Livni did warn, however, that even if the threat was temporarily held at bay, it would return unless a resolution was found to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
