    The chorus "just peace, pre-67 borders" is just that a pop refrain with about as much substance as "do wah wah do" and driven more than racism than realism. Might sound great to some people but means nothing. There was no peace in 1967 and there was no peace in 1956 or .. The same singers said "once you end the occupation of Gaza there will be peace".. And what did one get? The absolute worse case scenario of the most hawkish opponents of leaving Gaza. Could a new Arab state exist on pre-67 lands that once were part of Jordon and Egypt? No. OK.. remove Gaza.. Still no.. Everyone knows this.. And, of course, no Arab leader ever wanted this but to have the Middle East ethnically cleansed of Jews.. Most of the Middle East, save Israel, is now Judenrein.. and the chorus calling it peace is just crying for the rest.. they sing here "let Iran have a bomb to create a balance of power for peace" but what they really pray for is to get their "final solution" to the "Jewish problem".
