Previous peace plans which have been proposed to resolve the Palestinian issue have not been able to resolve the conflict permanently due to the lack of effective attention to territorial challenges on one hand and the identity and symbolic aspects involved in the conflict on the other hand and "Deal of Century" can not be excluded from this principle. In this regard, the main question of the current article is that "what are the most important geopolitical challenges of the Middle East peace talks focusing on deal of century, The findings of this study, which are obtained by descriptive-analytical approach, documentary method and collection of library data, reveal that this proposal is not only capable of providing a lasting solution to the Palestinian dispute, but also will lead to deepen and intensify it due to ignoring hard and soft geopolitical challenges involved in the Palestinian issue, such as not providing a sustainable solution for Palestinian at home and abroad, intensifying hydropolitical and water challenges with the neighbors, especially Syria and Jordan, and the disregard of the symbolic, security, and political position and importance of Jerusalem for the Palestinians.
