Netanyahu is outlining his initial negotiating positions; these are *not* preconditions. Preconditions are when you tell your negotiating partner, "I will not enter negotiations with you unless you agree to so-and-so beforehand. This is what Abbas is doing. Netanyahu is not saying to Abbas, "You must agree beforehand that Jerusalem will never be divided, otherwise I will not negotiate with you. *That* would be a precondition. Netanyahu is practically begging Abbas to negotiate now, without preconditions!
