The decision-making structure on the Muslim side is this: 1)any Muslim nation can veto a peace deal in Palestine, 2) no Muslim nation can accept a peace deal in Palestine without 100% agreement of all the Muslims in the world. So long as this system remains intact, war is the only possible outcome. The US is allied with Israel because Israel is the most stable state in the region (among other considerations). The presence of Israel forces the Iranian mullahs eg to ask, "If we attack the Saudis, will the US ask Israel to attack us?," and other such discouraging questions. The Palestinians are cannon fodder, and nothing else. Never have been. It would be sad, except that they seem to crave it.
