Barak didn't want to grant the Palestinians a viable state. Israel wants both security and even more Palestinian territory. It's shooting itself and the Palestinians in the foot that way. Palestinians do not have an Israeli partner that will grant them a viable future. Sad but true. But to keep on reading Israelis fooling themselves into believing that they are stretching out their hands in peace... It would be funny if it wasn't so tragic. I'm sure Israelis want it, but they are not willing to pay the price, namely giving the Palestinians back the West Bank and most of East Jerusalem. Barak didn't want to do it (Ever wonder why he never showed you, the Israeli public the 80% map of Camp David?) Sharon doesn't want to do it. Get with the program. You have already won! You got 78% of mandate territory Palestine. Give the Palestinians what's left. You won, they lost already. There is such a thing as a "bad winner" too.
