"to ask for such lines = which were never borders but armistice lines is stupid." JO is right. The armistice lines are not a border. The border of Israel was set in 1948 -the Green Line. Israel knows that she will never legally acquire land outside the Green Line unless the Palestinians cede it to her. And that they will never do. So lets fool everyone by starting over, carefully avoiding all previous agreements. If anyione is fool enough to agree to that, then perhaps Israel can construct a legal claim. Unfortunately, Abbas is not the fool Netanyahu likes to think he is; neither is Fayad; nor Haniyeh, nor the Islamic Jihad which doesn't give a hoot about borders, anyway. Once again Bibi beats his forehead against the stone wall of common sense, hoping against hope that things will be different this time. So round and round she goes once more .....
