The message is clear. As long as you don't deal with me - his price is peace - then the US and Israel can just sit and watch as he continues to do what he has claimed he will stop if there is negotiations and a peace treaty with Israel. The man has shown us what he wants, he has been shunned and threatened, and his reply is "I'll continue to do what you don't want in return for your refusal to talk." Makes sense to me.
