I would agree to a point, that Palestinians have often been their own worst enemy, but lets be real as well. It has happened before, ALOT. And every single time the Palestinians lay down their weapons and go to the table, Israel starts building more settlements and occupying/encroaching on their land. Every single time. So, the Palestinians start attacking again, and the whole cycle repeats itself. It's a no win for them, and Israel truly controls all the cards, either build on their land, or attack them in retaliation for armed resistance. It is just like what America did to the Native Americans in the 1800's....exactly the same....sadly.....exactly the same.
