242 stresses the 'inadmissibility of acquisition of territory by force'. Israel in direct contravention of that has attempted to aqcuire as much territory as possible by force by settling it. The USA's insistence on negotiation just leaves Israel as the much stronger party, rejecting any fair deal. It's like Western insistence on negotiations in the Bosnian War allowed the serbs, as the much stronger party to do whatever they wanted. Peace will eventually be imposed, as it was in Bosnia, because there can be no fair negotiatiosn where one party is far stronger.
