All those Israeli promises that peace is possible if only the Palestinians had a moderate leader, if only acts of violence against Israel were to cease etc. Abbas delivered both, and accordingly, was ignored. It will probably take an international ultimatum to force a peace treaty on Israel, which will probably include international boycotts, cut off of international aid etc. If Israel continues to attempt to maneuver the U.S. into yet another Middle East war, the American public's ever more lukewarm support for Israel will probably turn to hostility, which will expedite effective pressure on Israel to make peace.
