    vh: "there are no 1967 borders !!" Indeed true: the Green Line does not become a national border until it is recognized as a national border. Currently it is not, tho it *is* recognized as 1) where Israeli sovereignty ends, and 2) the line where Israeli law ends. Israel recognizes that the above is true, victor. vh: "what the pa is proposing is to annex part of israel !!!!!!!!!!!!!" That is, of course, a leap that victor can not justify with any logic, and it is worth pointing out that even ISRAEL ITSELF does not make the claim that victor has just pronounced. Israel "disputes" the Palestinian claim to that territory, but it certainly does not claim that this territory is already a "part of Israel". Such a claim is quite incompatible with a claim of "disputed territory", victor, or is it the case that you have no problems holding two contradictory thoughts in your head? That's called "cognitive dissonance", isn't it?
