There's nothing so sacrosanct about the 1967 borders or the 1948 ones or the 1973 ones or even the present ones. What you need to do is figure out who lives where right now and draw a reasonable, sensible border. No enclaves for special interests like settlers. Those who find themselves on the Palestinian side of the line may move or stay. Their choice. If they choose to stay they'll be Palestinians. Palestinian Jews. Israel has Arabs, Palestine will have Jews. It's the same thing. The US has been watching Israel's back for a long time but Israel's intransigence is making the continuation of this policy untenable. Look at it this way, when the state was established the final borders were a work-in-progress and were drawn imperfectly. After 63 years we have a good idea as to where people live and we are now in a position to do this more sensibly. I once heard someone say that a good deal is when everybody walks away pissed off.
