US should use its diplomatic power to recognize state on land already in their hands and with boundaries to be determined by negotiations. Israel should even support it...after all, if you listen to the Israeli government, it's meaningless anyway on the ground (of course, their single minded focus on stopping it shows they dont believe that rhetoric. The real reason Israel wont support that is because it puts a legal cloud over settlements...why should US care about that?
