Why there are no direct talks with the 'Palestinians'

In an earlier post, I discussed Abu Mazen's meeting with 'American Jewish leaders' and my belief that Abu Mazen's words were all for show. Josh Rogin has a summary of what was discussed at the meeting here. I just want to highlight one point from the summary (Hat Tip: Republican Jewish Coalition via Twitter).
But the Palestinian leader did relay the message from his meeting with Obama, which is that everyone must push faster toward direct talks. When participants asked him why he won't just agree to direct talks now, Abbas pointed back to the White House.

"He said, ‘This is what the administration asked me to do. How can I go further than the Obama administration?'" one participant remembered.
Huh? Obama is preventing direct talks from happening? What could go wrong?

Abu Bluff has a good point. The Palestinians won't be more Palestinian than Obama. If the US had insisted they talk directly to Israel, they would be doing so. But they get no criticism and no pressure for their obdurate extremism and intransigence vis a vis Israel. Just silence.

So why should they change?

What could go wrong indeed
