It's 100% Palestine's fault. That's literally his position. Which he has not heretofore revealed to voters.
His position is that he's in favor of Israel and the palestinians continuing to talk as long as both parties are interested in talking. He's made it clear that he would break from Obama's shift toward the palestinians and that he would oppose the larger global effort to delegitimize Israel and to force unilateral concessions from her.

He doesn't express any opinion on whether or not Israel should be willing to compromise. You're making that part up. He doesn't think Israel should be pressured into a compromise that they wouldn't freely accept.

He doesn't admit to brushing anyone off. For whatever reason, they didn't "delve into it".
