Palestinians: We Do Not Trust the Americans

The last time the Americans tried to extract concessions from the Palestinians, within a few weeks the Palestinians launched the Second Intifada against Israel; Abbas has already threatened as much.
"We want the Americans to be involved in the peace process, but the U.S. should focus its pressure on the Israelis and not on us," insist senior Palestinian officials, warning that should they be required to make concessions, they'd launch an Intifada.

They want to show the world that it is Israel that should be blamed for the collapse of the talks because of its refusal to comply with all the Palestinian demands. Moreover, the Palestinians are hoping, through the continued dialogue with the U.S. administration, to show the world that the Americans cannot do anything to bring about peace — a step which they hope would pave the way for the involvement of other parties in the conflict.
