    All Abbas needs to do is to move the US into pressuring Israel a bit more firmly (rather than trying to bribe her). Abbas should ask the Security Council to condemn Israel for building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which is against international law. Obama will not veto this, and the US may even support the resolution. This will demonstrate to Israel the peril of standing against the whole world without US support. Minds will change by reality. It is best for a Palestinian state to be declared with Israeli agreement than otherwise. Obama is too soft and this hinders the peace process.
