Spare me the "bazaar" nonsense, I've never seen any solid negotiations where the starting point for any party is not its most favorable outcome. It's as if the article wants Lebanese negotiators to just give stuff for free. Let Israel define what its most favorable outcome is and let's move from there. Anything short of that and Israel just wants land grab, which is not new.Say what you will about the merits of Israel's boundary claim, but Israel has been very consistent about what its claim is. Lebanon, by contrast, has made multiple different claims over even the last 12 months.
This article gives Israel's interpretation of Lebanon's claims:
One view has it that Lebanon isn’t really interested in reaching an agreement, only wishing to show the Trump administration that it was willing to negotiate to avoid risking disagreement with the Americans. The Lebanese leadership is also aware of the intense domestic media coverage of the talks, in which the delegation is being portrayed as courageously fighting for the country’s legitimate rights.
According to a different interpretation, the Lebanese have come to the table by approaching the talks like a Mediterranean bazaar – grabbing what they can through maximum demands, and in the end somehow reaching a compromise.
Another reason for their inflexible approach may relate to internal dynamics in the country involving Hezbollah, which had to agree to the opening of negotiations but was in no way enamored with them. Iran, interestingly, is keeping mum.
