That's the real problem with all negotiations. Israel currently has all the land and natural resources it wants, plus a quiet Pal population in the West Bank and an out-of-sight-out-of-mind Pal population penned In Gaza. The only potential fly in its ointment is Iran. but that's not part of these negotiations anyway, and already the White House has its orders from Israel on Iran and is carrying them out. Peace with the Arab league would be nice, but as the cold peace with Egypt and Jordan shows, it's not necessarily something to get hugely excited about. Let's face it, Bibi is only going to these talks at all because of US pressure, so, ultimately, the talks will only succeed if US pressure on Bibi is maintained and if it's backed by credible threats, like cutting off military aid or suspendinbg the use of the US veto in the security council. Otherwise, Bibi has nothing to win by peace and plenty to lose.
