The settlements serve as obstacles to Palestinian attacks on Israel. They are part of biblical Israel and religious Jews want to settle it. If they are an irritation to Palestinians then all the more reason to speed up the peace process before they expand furthur.It seems to me that any Palestinian leader ready to talk to Israel is discredited by PALESTINIANS as a stooge or quisling. Abbas doesn't control the Palestinian situation and neither does Hamas. If they are on the same page as to peace with Israel and the violence stops then I would expect difficult but successful negotiations with Israel.
