Abbas can test Netanyahu's veracity about preconditions. He can offer to recognize Israel at its original UN defined borders (pre-49 armistice lines), and he can offer a 1:1 stationing of Israeli and Palestinian SOLDIERS on each other's ports of entry to monitor smuggling. He can also demand recognition of Palestine as the non-Jewish state in exchange for recognition of Israel as the Jewish state, with Jerusalem as an open UN administered city. A return to status quo ante. See if Netanyahu is serious about bargaining and if his ruling coalition survives the opening round after the maps are leaked to the press. He'll also see what actual value, if any, Netanyahu places on international treaties signed by Israel and ratified by the Knesset.
