    In Israel the Knesset is made up of many parties all with different positions on the issue and for different reasons, for some its political, for some its a security issue and for some its ideals and because the government relies on a coalition most the time if one party pulls out the coalition because they don't get their own way then the entrée government collapses and its a problem that exist on both the left and right because its just about impossible for one party to run the country alone so everybody needs most the same old parties in their coalition and they all come into the coalition with demands so the problem is the political system. The palestinians though there has only really ever been Fatah when it came to ruing things politically so there are no coalition issues. Fatah are also corrupt and Abbas has basically become a dictator over the last 4-5 years The palestinians are ask uncompromising and its also hard to compromise because its all ideological and things like right of return are sacred to them but Israel will never accept. They will never have the kind of military power Israel does so making security a political issue is a no brainer. So in Israel there is to much political variation and for the palestinians there is no room for compromise of any sort. Israel will also never accept the preferred solution for palestinians and their supporters of a single state so thats not an option. Its not as black and white as the peacenics would like to believe it is.
