    There haven't been "real" negotiations for 10 years. We had the 2nd (terrorist) intifada for 4 or 5 years, then the transfer of power from Arafat to Abbas, then elections, then the 2006 Gaza/Lebanon war, then the Palestinian Civil War in 2007 culminating in the Hamas coup d'etat in Gaza, then the escalating rocket attacks from Gaza culminating in the 2008-09 Israel-Gaza war, then the settlement freeze from Nov. '09 to Sept '10 (which wasn't good enough to restart negotiations for the first 9 months), then the suspension of talks after a few weeks with the resumption settlement building, and then so-called Palestinian unity deal followed by Abbas' trip to the UN last week. There was never any intention on the Palestinians part to resolve the conflict by negotiation in all those ten years.
