How to Negotiate under Trump for the best Deal for Israel?
Remember, Trump is an objective mediator of 2 sides. He does not represent Israel nor the Palestinian Authority.
Obama masqueraded as Mediator but was clearly biased against Israel and Israel was never permitted to present their side without serious condemnation and repercussions.
Usually I agree with Caroline Glick but I think she misunderstands Trump.
Trump Embraces The PLO Fantasy - Caroline Glick
..."but now, it appears that Trump has been convinced to embrace the PLO obsession."
Caroline, I have a different take on the whole deal.
Trump is a much more fair mediator than Obama was.
That means he allows both sides to give it their best shot and he will try to negotiate a fair deal between the two sides.
The Arabs never needing much prodding.
The Palestinians have no problem demanding for everything in their initial bid. Abbas wants from the River to the Sea as per their PA charter. They have not revoked their charter. If you can prove that they have, William Langfan (father of Mark Langfan Chairman of AFSI) is offering you lots of money!
U.S. Philanthropist Offers Israeli Minister $200,000 to Find Change in Palestinian Charterhttps://www.algemeiner.com/2014/05/05/u-s-philanthropist-offers-israeli-minister-200000-to-find-change-in-palestinian-charter/
Israel should demand territory going to the Euphrates River, as was the original boundaries of the Balfour declaration as was the Original Mandate of Palestine in 1920 and consistent with the Biblical boundaries promised to Abraham in Brit Bein Habesarim https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Covenant_of_the_pieces.
Report on Syria conflict finds 11.5% of population killed or injuredExclusive Syrian Centre for Policy Research says 470,000 deaths is twice UN's figure with 'human development ruined' after 45% of population is displacedhttps://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/feb/11/report-on-syria-conflict-finds-115-of-population-killed-or-injuredIn all, 11.5% of the country's population have been killed or injured since the crisis erupted in March 2011, the report estimates. The number of wounded is put at 1.9 million. Life expectancy has dropped from 70 in 2010 to 55.4 in 2015. Overall economic losses are estimated at $255bn (£175bn).
Israel can truthfully claim that in those areas where Arabs, primarily Muslims, are currently living and suffering under terrible lawlessness and anarchy, Arabs will fare much better under Israel Sovereignty. The reason being is that Israel would enforce basic universal morality (also known as 7 Noahide Laws). This would bring much needed stability. Arabs would potentially receive health benefits, education and jobs so long as they accept Israel's guidelines.
Israel in fact has proven itself. Israel has saved the lives of many wounded Syrians providing them with humanitarian aid at Israel's expense. Under Israeli's Sovereignty, Israel can potentially build up Syria, Lebanon and Iraq and stop them from killing one another and stop the millions of refugees flowing into Europe and North America etc..
Arab Nations have recently had a change of heart towards Israel. They recognize that Israel and the United States under the Trump Administration is their only hope against a nuclear Iran.
Compare the rights of Muslim women living in Arab countries with Israeli Arab women living in the State of Israel.
Compare their basic human rights and freedom of movement and quality of life. Compare their basic needs of security, food, running water, electricity, health services, education and economy.
Arabs fare much better under Israel Sovereignty. That is fact. However, if they are terrorists that is not their goal. The destruction of Israel is.
Frankly if you took a poll, most Israel would rather not govern a population engaged in some of the worst human rights violations imaginable. It takes a lot of work to govern such a population only to be accused of being an Occupying Power. Yet according to the Lubavitch Rebbe, Jews are obligated to see to it that non Jews are practicing Universal Morality, the Seven Noahide Laws.
Frankly, almost all Jews would prefer not to shoulder this very heavy burden. "Let them leave us alone in peace and let them just govern themselves" is probably the majority opinion of most Jews on the matter.
However, let's go back to the making of a Deal...
Sovereignty over territory to the Euphrates, including parts of Lebanon, now occupied by a proxy terror state Hizbollah now controlled by Iran, and Sovereignty over Iraq and Syria occupied by ISIS, and Sovereignty over all of Gaza which is controlled by Hamas and Sovereignty over the entire Judea and Samaria known as the West Bank... In return they will to the best of their ability enforce universal morality with the aid of countries who share Judea Christian values (USA etc).
In contrast, in Israel, non Jewish residents are safe and welcome to reside in all parts of Israel under the status of Ger Toshav, so long as they adhere to the 7 Noahide Laws and accept the Sovereignty of Israel. All hostile elements should find their homes elsewhere outside the Jewish Homeland or choose to be expelled. If they choose to endanger Israeli civilians via "armed aggression" aka acts of terror, then they will pay the price they fully deserve.
This concept of being loyal to the Sovereign country is consistent with how all countries operate. Americans are required to show their allegiance to the United States of America. This is the reason behind Trump's Executive Order to vet migrants from terror territories.
Why should any country be a host, offer rights and offer a haven and benefits to those who are dangerous and hostile? Not to guard one's own people is suicidal as France and Germany and other European countries are finding out.
Proofs:Netanyahu and Lieberman start negotiating by expressing a willingness to be content with settlement blocs in Judea and Samaria! These settlement blocs are a mere fraction of Judea and Samaria. The understanding is that the vast territory of Judea and Samaria is potentially transferable to a Palestine State. In addition, they have thrown out settlers from their homes in Amona and Ofra and plan on doing so with Netiv Avot. They have frozen expansion in non settlement blocs.Please look at the Yellow map sent by Mattot Arim published by CNN https://www.facebook.com/Matt

Israel must build in all of Judea and Samaria not just in small settlement blocs a fraction of the area. Women in Green: Lieberman is mistaken & misleading ליברמן טועה ומטעה Don't put the blame on Trump Administration!
- This initial offer of Netanyahu and Lieberman annuls Torah.
- It puts Israel and Arabs in great danger
- 2 State Solution is no great solution for the Arabs. They fare better under Israel Sovereignty.
- Israel is stupidly giving away it's G-d Given Land as a beginning point of negotiation.
