Might as well go with "settlements" - Abbas can't deliver on "peace" since he doesn't control the 40% of Palestinians in Gaza under Hamas rule. They reject any peace treaty recognizing Israel as the Jewish State, and won't ever accept PA rule, give up their weapons and rockets. So why give Abbas ANYTHING? What, so Hamas can keep fighting while W. Bank enjoys all the benefits of a state? First step of any talks should be how Hamas will be removed from Gaza and PA rule installed, or there's nothing to talk about, Abbas and Erekat don't represent all their "people", any more than Nguyen Cao Ky and General Thieu represented "Vietnam". They are not a valid peace partner, can't agree to anything.
