John Kerry questions Abbas's commitment to peace

Former US secretary of state John Kerry questioned Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's commitment to peace Wednesday after Abbas gave a speech riddled with antisemitism Monday.
"These comments are wrong, ugly, and unacceptable - anywhere from anyone - but particularly from anyone who says he wants to be a peacemaker," he said in a tweet. "No excuses for antisemitism: words to be condemned, not explained away."
