What you are describing was not Barak's offer. Barak's offer involved dismantling most of the settlements!

Furthermore, both Saeb Erekat and Yossi Beilin have stated publicly that the talks did not break down over settlements. The two sides had worked out an agreement on settlements.

What destroyed the talks was Arafat's blanket insistence that Israel accept the right of return of 3.7 million Palestinian refugees, not to Palestine, but to Israel, thus extinguishing it as a Jewish state.
