    "The prisoner document sanctifies the Green Line as a permanent border between Israel and Palestine." "It calls for Israel to negotiate a retreat completely to the 1967 line" What lie?"-Standar The lie that the Green Line is a border, never mind a permanent border. The Green Line is an armistice line, no more and no less.Jordan who resisted accepting the armistice lines as an International Border. The statement that the Green Line is a border pre-supposes the terms of a peace settlement. It also neglects that wars were fought since that time and Israel repulsed her invaders in '67 and '73. Using the same logic you apply to the Green Line, one can say that the present armistice lines are the actual Final Borders. I don't believe that's the case as a final peace settlement has not been agreed upon. So, are armistice lines final lines?? Dan was correct. your apology is accepted.
