    "It is irrelevant whom Israeli drove from the territory"(Ron) You are kidding right? It is not irrelevant that Jordan's sovereignty over the West Bank was NOT recognized by anyone other than Pakistan and Britain. It is NOT irrelevant that at that stage, in 1967, the Palestinians themselves did NOT demand a state in the West Bank but only in Israel proper. NOR is it irrelevant that the construction of the settlements began at that time, when the land was disputed and the Arabs did NOT want to recognize Israel no matter what was offered to them. "I didn`t mention 1967 borders. Debate that with yourself"(Ron) No, I will debate it with you because the 1967 boundary lines which were actually the 1949 armistice lines (NOT recognized borders) are the ones in dispute. Fatah and their allies now want Israel to withdraw to THOSE lines while Israel insists that it is willing to withdraw to more secure boundaries. Israel stated that it is willing to offer offsets to territories that it wants to keep in order to make it's borders more defensible and secure. That's what the whole territorial dispute is all about Ron. Where the new borders should be (although there are other disputes too)... "You should read UN 242 before calling others "false." (Ron) No Ron, you should read it. UN Resolution 242 states that Israel is to withdraw to "secure and recognized boundaries" and what does the word "Recognized" mean in this context? It means that the boundaries must be negotiated ... Now I accept that there is a big debate about what UN resolution 242 really means and that some people accept your version of it but please don't pretend that you have the definitive answer because people like Lord Cardanon, Arthur Goldberg, Joseph Sisco and many others disagree with YOUR interpretation. And those people should know because at least some of them were involved in the drafting of Resolution 242.
