Sec’y Kerry is here trying to induce both parties to restart negotiations. He is trying to get Israel to provide incentive to Abbas to return.
Israel, so far, has not offered any, nor should she.
If getting a state of their own through negotiations is not reason enough for them to return then there is no hope for a peace agreement.
If the Palestinians want a state they should negotiate and pay the price needed to get one.
But they are unwilling to pay anything to get one. They wanted it given on a platter.
