Israels goal is to appear to want peace while actively avoiding it. Normally this is not difficult. Accomodating presidents Clinton and Bush did not make a serious peace attempt until the final year of their eight years in office. Israel happily played along, knowing that all peace efforts reset to zero when a new president is elected. Obama created a new situation when he pushed for peace frmo his first moment in office. This may mean that Israels peace fakery may need to be more involved. in order to outlast Obama.
