    Obama does not state the 1967 border should be returned...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    He said the 1967 border should be used as a basis. Read this from CNN.


    Quote:
    "We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states," Obama continued.
    The key it "mutually agreed swaps." The far right wants everyone to believe he is throwing his support to the Palestinians. That is totally untrue. He is actually stating something that every President in recnet history has believed. That is that the 1967 boundary should be the first consideration for negotiations.

    But I am certain the far right will call this a huge concession, when it is not. He is just the first President to have the fortitude to say it.

    Talk about Spin. Obama is pretty clear that the current borders should be based on the 67 borders.

    He didn't say this was a starting off point. Quite lying.

    Spin it all you want. What Israel and the Palestinians heard was return to 1967 Borders. I challenge you to show evidence of any Former US President suggesting we use the 1967 borders.

    If I were Israel... I'd go all '300' on them...

    Obama and the Palestine whiners: "we want your borders and we want that land"

    Israel: "Come and take them"

    It's Israel's land... point blank... and unless the ones in that region want their little asses kicked in 6 days again... I'd let it be

    Other than Egypt has it ever worked? And now that Egypt is getting a new government and the peace is likely over, what did they gain for the peace? Perhaps if Egypt ends the peace accords, their land should resort back to Israel. I mean if they are going to break the agreement, then shouldnt it revert?

    Just let any new government in Egypt try and deny Israel or the West access to the Canal, and see just how fast it "reverts" back to Israel.


    lol

    Then conflicts will continue, and that is okay with you. The settlements will not stop as long as BN is in charge. Let's throw some more money at it, that we don't have. That is also okay.

    Why should they stop settling their land?
