You leave out the most important difference between now and 10-30 years ago.; the expansion of the settlements and Netanyahu who has no intention of negotiating a 2 state solution requiring legal, agreed upon borders. This change of policy and the world's condemnation of the current Israeli/Palestinian situation, is why it may seem that the US is less involved. It isn't. Obama put more effort into a 2-state solution than any prior President. He was rebuffed by Israel. In a few short years, Israel has managed to alienate most of the world's governments which makes it increasingly difficult for the US. The US does have other allies to consider. In 2009 Obama knew from intelligence reports that the Arab spring was beginning and would spread. He recognized the importance, particularly at that time, of an Israeli/Palestinian agreement in order to assure security in Israel. This is why he was pushing so hard for negotiations. As a US citizen, the only thing that's changed is Israel.
