    Are the PA and Arab League trustworthy and looking for a fair solution or are they looking to get everything for the PA and nothing for Israel? Remember it takes two to tango and neither Israel nor the PA is solely responsible if talks fail. Right now Abbas is the main one who wants talks to fail for the simple fact he doesn't want to make the kind of compromises negotiations force him to make. The arab plan obligates Israel to give up every inch of land and grant a right of return or no deal. Abbas preferred option is going to the UN General Assembly and now he has his upgrade call for a resolution obligating Israel to give him everything he wants. it will of course pass with a huge majority and whilst UNGA resolutions are nnot binding he will demand individual countries place sanctions on israel because they voted on the resolution. Abbas just wants to be able to walk out of negotiation looking like the victim and he wants to try get as many perks before he walks like prisoner releases. Israel will never trust the Arab League or anybody else. The only country that has any influence over Israel is the US. So if the US is not going to be the middle man who should or could it be?
