The two sides of Kerry's mouth

"Analysis: How Netanyahu averted coalition crisis":
"Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu succeeded in preventing his governing coalition from unraveling over the weekend following the announcement of forthcoming negotiations with the Palestinian Authority.
Netanyahu kept Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett satisfied by receiving a commitment from the Americans that they would not say the talks would be based on pre-1967 borders."
"Palestinian officials say Kerry gave guarantees that '67 borders are basis for talks"

Kerry simultaneously, and semi-publicly, promised the Palestinians the 'negotiations' would be based on the pre-'67 borders, and promised the Israelis the 'negotiations' would not be based on the pre-'67 borders (aka, the ‘Auschwitz Borders’).
