AP INTERVIEW: Israel opposition chief says Netanyahu's views on peace deal remain enigma

Israel's opposition chief says Benjamin Netanyahu's views on a peace deal with the Palestinians remain an enigma, and that he's not sure the Israeli prime minister has the "mental willingness" to do what is needed.
Herzog has met recently with Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. He says "each one thinks the other one may not be willing to go as far as needed."
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is back in the region Thursday to prod both sides toward a deal. Herzog says the chance of success "is not zero."
