    Lets assume, being optimists, that Abbas and Bibi evantually come to some updated version of the Clinton deal that Areafat torpedoed over his insane "Right of Return" demand. This is another waste of time without a CREDIBLE PLAN, in advance, to impose this deal on Hamastan, its rocket arsenal, and its 20,000 armed jihadis whose leadership rejects any peace with Israel. Israel has no incentive to make any "painful concessions" without an airtight guarantee that Gaza will go along. Obviously, a "shelf agreement" allowing a WB State while Gaza keeps fighting Israel is a non-starter, as is "Land for Hudna". Israel is not going to fight Abbas' civil war for him, and he can't do it without a level of PA firepower Israel will never allow. Who's going to clean out 25,000 rejectionist Hamas and its arsenal from Gaza? This needs a PLAN as a first step in talks, because Abbas doesn't speak for all the "Palestinians", only the WB half. Bibi, as PM, does speak for all Israelis. Otherwise, peace talks are meaningless. GOT IT???
