47. The removal of the settlements and East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital
Their capital is inevitably going to be East Jerusalem anyway. So long as Israel has West Jerusalem and there's free access to the holy sites(and remember, it was JORDAN that blocked Jewish access to the holy sites from 1948 to 1967, NOT Palestinians)there's no reason for Israel to object to this.

What's going to doom any peace process is the assumption that Palestinians are completely incapable of being reasonable and honorable. The Israeli government and its hardcore supporters are going to have to let go of that belief, since any peace will be a compromise and the war can't possibly end thorough getting Palestinians to accept surrender.
