    The Palestinians have done nothing to push forward any peace agreements. They haven't abided by the terms of the first Oslo accords let alone the terms of any other accords. If PA terrorists are really in short supply on the West Bank it is more likely that the wall of separation and other Israeli initiatives to frustrate them has worked than anything done by the PA itself. The need for the PA to recognize Israel as a Jewish state is a red herring, just like the claim that Israel has to agree to the Palestinian right of return or implement a complete freeze of construction on settlements. If the PA really wanted a settlement, they could have had one based on past agreements which they refused. The terms are NOT getting any better for them, yet they are no closer today then they were 16 years ago. While the LEFT wing perception might be that the peace process is stuck because Israel doesn't want it, the reality is that the peace process is stuck because the PA has thrown nothing but roadblocks in the way of moving forward and doesn't even control all of the Palestinian territory--giving a HUGE and bloody Veto to HAMAS on all agreements.
