I'm one of the first to generally defend Israel, but it's become pretty blatant that Israel's dragging its feet in terms of the peace process at this point. It finally seems that the Palestinians have placed themselves into a reasonable position. Unfortunately, the Palestinians' history of blatantly working against peace in the past created a situation in which Israel didn't keep its uglier side in check, and now that's become the primary hindrance to negotiations. The isolation Israel is currently experiencing couldn't possibly be more appropriate.
