As for the gist of your commentary - yes...there is great potential for compromise. But one thing that BOTH sides need to understand is that compromise seldom results from outright demands - nor will it come from confrontational discussions or those laced with animosity. These will invariably result in hair being raised and heels digging in deep. And there's one other thing...one of the parties really needs to relinquish the strategy of trying to gain as much as it can and come to terms with the fact that ITS part entails the 'return' of territory to which it was never entitled - and it also needs to approach the subject of retaining its large settlement blocks with that fact soundly in mind.
