    The problem is that the international pressure, which has been slowly growing over the years has gotten to the point of no return. Not one nation in the world, not one, supports Israels settlement activity and this settlement activity also makes Israel look like they are just faking peace attempts and not faking them very well. Israel has attracted the notice of people who never paid attention before. They always thought that Israel was an extension of America with the same values, and the same role of being the constant "good guy". The attention Israel has gotten have destroyed this image, not only for Israel but for America as well. This will not be changed by granting some temporary concessions to Abbas, the well known stooge of Israel. As a party to the land dispute, nobody outside Israel is likely to think it fair that Israel decides the outcome.
