Abu Mazen threatens 'action' against Israel if 'talks' fail

'Moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen is threatening to take 'action' against Israel if the current round of 'talks' fails.
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has warned that the PA will "take action" against Israel via international bodies if peace talks fail, ahead of a visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry.    
"The talks are going through great difficulties because of the obstacles created by Israel," Abbas told visiting Arab journalists late Monday at his headquarters in Ramallah.
"If we don't obtain our rights through negotiations, we have the right to go to international institutions," he said.    
"The commitment to refrain from action at the UN ends after the nine-month period agreed for talks."    
US-brokered peace talks, which resumed at the end of July after a three-year gap, have already begun to flounder as disputes continue over numerous core issues, such as PA demands for all Jews to be deported from any future "Palestinian State" in Judea and Samaria, as well as ongoing incitement against Israel.
The PA negotiating team has tendered its resignation in protest of Israeli construction in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, but Abbas has yet to accept it.
 What a brilliant idea it was to hold these ill-prepared talks. What could go wrong?
