If the "peace process" is all talk and no action, this is a success for Israel. "Progress" in the peace process would entail Israel giving up land in the territories. Although most consider this prospect inevitable, they would not expect to begin until Israel was at risk to do otherwise. With weak and indifferent America leadership ignoring the fact that Israel is ignoring peace efforts, it may be a long time until a real peace process begins. In the meantime, through technology and pluck, and maybe with the help of a few friends, the Palestinians may forge their own salvation. If they can place enough pressure upon Israel of the right type, Israel will cave, since the end result has always been understood anyway. Israel is just waiting for an inducement.
