    In the Camp David Summit of July 2000, then PM Ehud Barak offered Arafat the whole shebang including some extra land from the Negev (Halutza). Arafat stalled the talks (even Clinton blamed him) and then embarked on a murderous rampage inside Israel that cost the lives of over one thousand Israelis, mostly civilian non-combatants.. Outrages included blowing up busses, restaurants and malls. In 2008, Olmert went even further than Barak but still Abbas failed to embark on serious negotiations. At Obama's behest, Netanyahu froze building for ten months but Abbas did not deign to re-enter negotiations. Moscow backed Arafat and Moscow trained Abbas seems to be the nyet men and you, Melissa are, as usual somewhat shaky on the facts.
