Of course it wouldn't. It would want all of Gush Etzion, including the arab towns like Nahallin. It wouldn't have the political spine to vacate 28 settlements, particularly the lawless ones in the Sth Hebron hills. It wouldn't be able to deliver the Beir Awwa salient, because it would have to give away a Jewish village. It wouldn't want to give up the land in the southern Jordan Valley, because it's... well, free. In fact, what WOULD Israel be prepared to give up? Something? Anything? Just about nothing? Basically, you'll never satisfy a greedy occupier with colonial pretensions above their station and Abbas would be mad to try.
