All during the 1st half of 1967 Nasser and the Syrians prattled on and on that what was coming would be a war of annihilation against Israel. During that time cross border raids and artillery barrages from Syria (into Israel below the Golan, where the Syrian artillery was) and JORDAN (which is where the West Bank was) and Egypt (which is where Gaza was) continued.
Palestinians say no peace talks without ‘67 borders agreementThe Palestinians played down on Monday the significance of an imminent meeting in Washington of their top peace envoy with his Israeli counterpart, saying formal negotiation would not begin unless their opening terms were satisfied.The Palestinian position seemed to run counter to U.S. hopes that bringing together Saeb Erekat and Israel’s Tzipi Livni in the coming days would kick-start peacemaking stalled for almost three years over Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.In another setback to the negotiators’ meeting, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu planned first to seek cabinet-level approval for the prospective new talks, which were announced by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday.
UN 242 made clear that those borders had YIELDED to the objective reality that the 1967 borders were, in fact, nearly indefensible when faced by 300,000,000 people screaming for your ‘annihilation’.
Only an imminently nuclear Iran has muted this sound today.
When the leaders of the Palestinians, backed by the arab govts surrounding Israel AGREE that Israel BELONGS WHERE IT IS, there will something to discuss.
Until then people are foolish to think any real peace can be achieved.
Talk about a truce. Talk about improving autonomy. Talk about helping the West Bank help itself economically (good luck) and FORGET ANYTHING ABOUT GAZA except a World War Z WALL.
