Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's handling of the now-moribund Palestinian peace negotiations drew criticism from both sides of his own coalition Sunday, and one partner said relations with the United States had plunged to an all-time low.The administration of President Barack Obama has blamed the diplomatic impasse on both its Israeli ally and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, whose surprise reconciliation with rival Hamas Islamists in late April prompted Netanyahu to call off peacemaking.Netanyahu is shunning Abbas, demanding he first spurn Hamas.Dovish Israeli President Shimon Peres also appeared to be parting with Netanyahu's hardline on Abbas in a very public fashion by meeting the Palestinian leader at a prayer for peace hosted by Pope Francis at the Vatican on Sunday.
