You imply the Palestinian lost an opportunity. If you do, you once more prove you have no idea what you are talking about. It is a chronic condition. Abbas was prepared to accept the OImert offer. In 2009, Mr Olmert offered generously to Mahmoud Abbas and it was the best offer Abbas or Arafat had ever been proffered. He did not offer return of Palestinian refugees to Israel, but he proposed a real breakthrough. The myth is that Abbas rejected the offer. In fact, Abbas said,"with that offer we can have peace in 2 days." The Palestinians were ecstatic and so was the EU. The Quartet agreed, and requested Israel make the offer binding. It never did. And that was the end of it.
