It states that there should NOT be a return to the exact 1967 borders; minor adjustments are envisioned on a one-for-one basis i.e. 8% of the West Bank ceded to Israel in return of 8% of Israeli land next to Gaza ceded to the Palestinian state. That is Resolution 242 at work; the missing "the" was done exactly to allow such border adjustments to be negotiable. If it had said "all the territories" then there would have been NO wriggle-room for negotiation, and Israel would now be looking at loosing *all* the settlements. The only difference betwen THEN and NOW is that the authors of 242 envisioned border adjustments for SECURITY reasons, while Israel is now hamstrung by self-imposed DEMOGRAPHIC reasons i.e. the need to keep those ulta-right settlers happy.
