The problem is, the US isn't an impartial peace broker.
The US military industrial complex profits from the $billions$ the US gives Israel each year in military and economic support. I find it difficult to believe that US President Obama and his secretary Hillary (both of whom have sworn unshakable support for Israel, repeatedly) are likely to negotiate a fair and just peace.
If anyone was serious about peace, the process would be led by an impartial adjudicator from a non-aligned country with a reputation for fairness. The americans might be able to impose a form of peace on Israel, but the Palestinians don't trust the Americans or the Israeli/US installed dictator Abbas:
The PNA has received financial assistance from the European Union (external - login to view) and the United States (external - login to view) (approximately USD $1 bln. combined in 2005). All direct aid was suspended on 7 April 2006 as a result of the Hamas (external - login to view) victory in parliamentary elections.

Palestinians have a slim chance of peace or justice resulting from these "talks". Israel plays for time, Abbas for money and Obama for midterm elections.
Why is it that when a democratic society decides to discontinue support to what many consider to be a Terror Org - It is then called by people like yourself as inhumane -
Govts are elected in a fair and open election
Hamas if you check the record came to power because of a split vote - 2 or more PLO reps running for election against 1 Hamas candidate.
Then you call them elected democratically -
Then they gunned down and killed of any dissent in Gaza - Rebut that my friend
They have an iron grip that includes targeted killings of PLO supporters - You fail to see that.
Yet you call yourself impartial.
Before the last US election it was Bush that was the problem - Now it is Obama - who has done more to reach out than bush ever did.
Why not come clean and realize that supporting Hamas and Hezbollah you are against any peace in the Mid East -
That you by your posts support the ongoing killings on both sides.
Arafat never wanted Peace -
Hamas does not want peace
But you continue to support those that are in favor of War -
That you are in favor of the disappearance of the State of Israel
As to the US - They more than anyone want peace in the Mid East - It causes their foreign relations with Arab Countries any number of problems.
