If the author is right, then a vote for Palestinian statehood along the pre-war borders (1967) is a de facto conferral of recognition to the state of Israel following those borders. that's a functional recognition of Israel's right to exist and Israel ought to seize this opportunity to win that concession. I know, I've heard the "defensible borders" canard..in truth, those borders were defended within hours, when the 1967 war broke out; with all the IDF's power, they could be easily defended once again....but with a fair and honest peace deal, the borders may not need to be defended. The defensible borders argument is thin cover for keeping the Jews Only settlements in the WB and E J'lem inside Israel proper, not in a Palestinian state, where they settlers would be a foreign minority....illegal aliens.
