D: "If they really wanted a state they would return to the negotiation table immediately and put the onus on Bibi." And Bibi would respond to that "onus" by sitting at the negotiating table with his arms crossed and a smirk on his face, and all the while muttering "No, try again" to ever bridging proposal, non-paper, position-paper, policy-paper, etc., that is placed before him by either the Palestinians or the Americans.

Quite the reverse; he has arranged things so that settlement expansion will continue for as long as those negotiations drag on. Therefore the only sensible strategy for him to follow is to drag out those negotiations until the End Of Days. Which is exactly what he will do, because that is exactly what he did last time he was PM.
