He can threaten that if the Abbas won't agree to a larger swap 1) We will insist that the areas we swap in return be areas now populated by Israeli 'Palestinians' and not vacant land 2) He can threaten that if we don't get the settlements we want, we won't insist that the settlers in the unswapped areas return to Israel, and he (Abbas) will have to deal with them. We also can offer to 'pay extra' for a higher percentage - i.e the first 1.9% on a 1 to 1 basis, the next 2 % on a 1 to 1.5 basis and the next 2% at a 2 to 1 basis. Or we can offer to allow building a Chunnel under our territory to connect Gaza with the West Bank, assuming Gaza is a complete party to the agreement (i.e declares that it accepts the State of Israel and ends all claims against it.)
