Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas blew it. 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu handed him a major political victory on a platter and Abbas dropped it.

In his zeal to block a French-led effort to convene an international Middle East peace conference, Netanyahu told his French counterpart that such a meeting would be useless, but he's ready to "fly to Paris tomorrow" for one-on-one negotiations with the Palestinian leader.
