I really do not see any use of negotiating with Arabs (who want to murder you/subjugate you) at all. You either have your foot on their necks, or their swords will be at yours.
Israel Should Not Be Negotiating with Mahmoud Abbas

Former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir wisely stated, “Peace will come when the Arabs love their own children more than they hate us.” These words uttered by Golda Meir in 1957 are still valid for our times. It is pointless to negotiate with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, an authoritarian dictator who doesn’t even respect the human rights of his own people. A Palestinian leader who doesn’t respect the human rights of the Palestinian people cannot be expected to care about the basic human rights of the Israeli people, his declared enemy.
Aside from Mahmoud Abbas’ hostile actions towards the State of Israel and the Jewish people, the Palestinian Authority Constitution, formulated in 2003, declares Islam as a state religion and states that the principles of the Palestinian state should be based upon Islamic Shariah Law. This reality has created a hostile atmosphere for Palestinian Christians.
The Gatestone Institute has reported that there has been incitement of Christians in mosque sermons within the Palestinian Authority. They also cited that the Palestinian judicial system doesn’t protect Christian land owners and enforces discrimination against the Palestinian Christian community. As a result, Christian land and property has been confiscated, Christian women have been abused, raped, abducted and subject to forced marriages to Muslim men, and Islamic dress has been imposed on Christian women. This is how Abbas’ Palestinian Authority treats a minority group that has never been opposed to them.
However, the Palestinian Authority does not even respect the human rights of Muslim Palestinians either. Khaled Abu Toameh has reported continuously about how Mahmoud Abbas has tortured prisoners in PA custody and oppressed critical bloggers and journalists. It was recently reported in the National Post that Palestinian mosques petitioned for the execution of a divorced Palestinian woman in an honor crime and that honor crimes rose significantly within the PA in 2013 compared to 2012. Abbas has continued to refuse to take the action that is required to protect Palestinian women fully from honor crimes. This reality in the Abbas-dominated Palestinian Authority demonstrates that Abbas does not love his own people more than he hates Jews, so on what grounds can we negotiate with him?
