ABSTRACT
The article questions if Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can negotiate for peace and reform. Netanyahu had made clear, in telephone conversations with U.S. President Bill Clinton, that the personal security of Israelis is his priority in negotiations with Palestine and Syria. He asked the Clinton administration to adapt itself to his style of negotiating. He plans to demand reciprocity, which will require concessions from Arabs in return for concessions from Israel. The negotiations will see Netanyahu enter into dialogue with Palestine leader Yasir Arafat and mark out a firm position on six issues such as that only Arafat is responsible for bringing an end to terrorism on the West Bank and in Gaza and that Jerusalem will never be an Arab capital and only Jordanians can have access to the Muslim holy places.
