MK Shimon Peres, one of the prominent figures in Kadima, said Friday that he does not see any problem with meeting with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. Peres said that Abbas is not Israel's enemy, but rather a leader who stands by his word. If Israel, Peres said, is angry at the Hamas victory, than it must realize that Abbas does not represent Hamas. Peres said that he is in contact with Abbas, but declined to state whether or not the two planned to meet, Israel Radio reported. A top official in the prime minister's office said that "no minister or Kadima member will meet with Abbas without the permission of Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert."
