Palis dont want to talk because of the settlements being contrsucted. This is simply obfuscation. Any settlements that are built, will all be subject to final status. Some may have to be dismantled, some may not. But if the palis dont want to talk, they will in the end have little of what they want. No state except that which they can convince the Un they deserve. For not talking they will shoot themselves in the foot, and jerusalem will not be part of any Un decision. The peace train is leaving the station, palis can climb on board and begin negotiating or they can stay in the station and watch the train leave. It may be a long time before the peace train ever passes this way again.
