    'No one even talks about the 1948 borders being the official ones, clown. They talk about the 1967 armistice lines being a starting point for negotiations.' Sounds good but largely wrong. The original borders prescribed by the UN and accepted by Israel in 1948 are Israel's official, legal borders. This is the only land it has ever declared sovereignty over. It does NOT include Beersheba, Sderot, the Triangle, etc. The fact that the UN wants negotiations based on the 1967 Armistice Line (the Green Line) is down to one thing only: the PA has not insisted, as they properly could, that negotiations start on the internationally-recognised 1948 borders. They would be justified to do so. The fact that they haven't and are prepared to surrender a large swathe of territory that increases Israel's depth, is deliberately ignored and trashed by extremist Zios like SDHD. The PA's unrecognised generosity is sadly a big tactical mistake when dealing with a venal nation like Israel.
