TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- The Israeli United Nations ambassador Ron Prosor has said in a cable to the foreign ministry that Israel stands "no chance" of garnering sufficient opposition to the Palestinian UN bid, Haaretz reported Sunday.

"The maximum that we can hope to gain [at the UN vote] is for a group of states who will abstain or be absent during the vote," Prosor wrote in a report sent last week.

"Only a few countries will vote against the Palestinian initiative," he wrote.

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton will meet with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman in Jerusalem Sunday, ahead of a meeting of the EU's foreign ministers on September 3rd.

According to Haaretz, most senior Israeli officials believe that the UN bid is unavoidable but should be condemned, much like the Goldstone Report.

A smaller number of Shin Bet and Israeli army officials believe that Israel should seek to change the language of the resolution to resume negotiations after the vote, the Israeli daily said.
