If a 2-state settlement is achieved, the Palestinians will have to give up on some of their aspirations. Abbas is a sound politician. He understands that. He would have to present the negotiated settlement as a package to his people, showing that on balance the Palestinians have gained more than they have lost. This is how realpolitik works. Yes, it will be a hard-sell but far more likely to be achievable if he can present it as a package providing statehood rather than it being presented in isolation through the media.
