    I cannot understand what Bibi wanted ! Obama said clearly: "... The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps ...." So, I must presume the big settlement blocks along the 1967 line remain Israeli and the swaps are, for the time being, undefined. The idea is simple - Don't move all hundreds of thousands of settlers from beyond and within the 1967 border, as this is impossible economically and practically.Just remove all the little outposts which are spread all over the West Bank making it impossible to the Palestinians to live among themselves. This is the reason, not the ridiculous "indefensible borders". In short: if what I presume is not true, then what Obama said is not valid either. And if yes, it is true, then that is the only possibility for a reasonable peace. So, what is missing Bibi??? And forget the indefensible borders. There is no such thing !
