I don't think any one entity is to blame for the continual failure of peace talks between Israel and Palestine. Maybe I'm being optimistic, but I think over time, a generation that doesn't hold the same historical grudges will make progress towards a two-state solution.
I like the idea of a mediation council that isn't just the US. But it may be difficult to find mediation partners that are more sympathetic to Palestine that would still be willing to negotiate reasonably.
