    Do not negotiate based on ’67 lines

    Likud sources claim PM ready to negotiate on basis of pre-1967 lines

      Palestinian sources told the Saudi daily Al-Watan on Sunday that the Kerry plan offers Israeli and Palestinian negotiators a political trade-off: Israeli recognition of the 1967 lines as a basis for the future Palestinian state, in return for Palestinian recognition of Israel as the state of the Jewish people.

    US deal will trade off ‘Jewish’ Israel for 1967 lines — report

      US Secretary of State John Kerry will offer Israeli and Palestinian negotiators a political trade-off: Israeli recognition of the 1967 lines as a basis for the future Palestinian state, in return for Palestinian recognition of Israel as the state of the Jewish people, Palestinian sources told the Saudi daily Al-Watan on Sunday.

    Ya’alon: EU boycott preferable to rockets on Ben-Gurion Airport

    Defense Ministry spokesman Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Monday said that if compromises in peace negotiations would lead to “rockets from Nablus, Ramallah and Jenin onto Ben-Gurion Airport, then I would rather have a European boycott” on Israel.

    1. NormanF says:

      The Israeli elite is rudderless and directionless. They don’t have a goal nor a vision. They just want “quiet” if that’s all they can get.

      On the hand, the Arabs have a clear vision and direction since 1948: Israel’s destruction. And they are supremely confident they will win. Jewish internal divisions and the withering away of Zionism will do their work for them.

      For the Arabs, the framework for their vision is their understanding that for them is peace is a tactic. While for the Jews on the other hand, peace is the goal. So the Arabs will pretend to talk to Israel but they will never accept Israel’s core demands.

      At some point the Israeli elite will have to decide if they want to buy the quiet they crave or continue with a grinding conflict for which they are not sure they have the staying power to win. There is no third option.

    2. Shai ben Tekoa says:

      It seems Bibi has forgotten — with no one to remind him — that negotiating on the basis of the ’67 lines violates UNSC Res. 242 which called for new lines, not a return to the old ones because the old ones only tempted the Arabs to go to war.
