    But two key points: 1. Abbas has avoided negotiations with Israel for the last three years. In his public statements, he is sticking to positions on things like the so-called "right of return" and Jerusalem that are very extreme to most Israelis and Jews. Netanyahu has been pleading with him to return to the table, and even offered up a ten month settlement freeze as a concession, but Abbas has not budged. If Abbas had spent the last three years in face to face negotiations, that had gone nowhere, I could accept the argument that he is going to the UN because he has no other option. But, that is not the reality, and to ignore it is a blatant effort to rewrite history. 2. To claim that the U.S. has not been actively working for peace, given that the U.S. has done more then any other country for the last four decades to try and resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict, is another blatant rewrite of history.
