    "Any deal will have to be based on security arrangements and a recognition of Israel as a Jewish state" - Netanyahu/// Being more explicit, Netanyahu said that first there should be talk about security issues and only then on borders. Let us see how it will work: First Netanyahu will demand the Jordan Valley (15-20% of West Bank), then the area overlooking BG Airport, etc., as security measures, and then he will talk about borders of what is left. Then Netanyahu will demand that the palestinians should recognize israel as a Jewish state, then claim that Palestinian refugee cannot return to a "Jewish" state and will be willing to discuss the refugee problem on this basis. I am not saying that the refugees should go back to Israel, but discussing the issues as a whole, trading concessions in Jerusalem for concessions on the refugees, is the way to conduct negotiations. Netanyahu is trying to cheat people who are expert cheaters like himself, and fool the rest of the world who know he is an expert liar. Not going to work.
