Why Israel Can't Do a Deal with the Palestinians

Netanyahu lays it out in terms anyone can understand.  If he agrees to divide Jerusalem and return to the 1949 lines, there will be a genocidal terrorist entity 400 meters from his home :

“It’s very easy to capitulate. I could go back to the impossible to defend ’67 lines, and divide Jerusalem, and we’d get Hamas 400 meters from my home.” That would not happen under his leadership, he said.

“It’s easy to do, and they’d applaud,” he went on, presumably referring to the US-led international community. “They’d applaud just like they applauded the parties (in the 2005 Israeli government) that pulled out of Gaza. Those parties got applause, and we got a rain of rockets.”
