    The American president needs peace fakery. This is an important item to "check off" as part of his presidency. Because of this, he will bribe the Israelis into cooperation. The Palestinians get no bribes. Their cooperation is assumed. This is because they are the only ones who will actually gain by peace, so the prospect of peace is considered ample motivation for them. This would be true if real peace was in the offing, but there is no reason for the Palestinians to participate in peace fakery. They only play the stooge in this scenario. Having America as a peace mediator is a huge handicap. The fact that America provides free weapons, money, and political cover to Israel makes America part of the problem, not the solution.
