And where will those borders be? Bibi is master of keeping his coalition together, giving lip service to peace talks, and just plain procrastinating for political gain. Israel needs real borders period, 1967 lines with some swaps are the real way to begin. My biggest question in what happens to Ariel and similar "fingers" in the West bank. Lots of people will need to be moved, and government settlement policies supported by Sharon and Likud in the 1980s will make this population shift virtually impossible. It will take lots of backbone with Likud out of power, and great flexibility on Jerusalem. This is the basis of the deal, but we all knew this 30+ years ago, surprise anyone?
