Even if that were true, Likud is one of several political parties in Israel and it's clear that a large portion of Israelis are willing to support a two-state solution if they can be confident about Israeli security. If a reasonable negotiating party for a two-state solution emerges among palestinians and if Likud refuses to negotiate, Israelis will not be shy about electing a government that will.
Unfortunately, the same is not true for the palestinians. They have no interest in peace with Israel and no political leadership attempting to lead them down that path. Not Hamas and not Fatah. No one. That's where the problem lies, not with Likud.
