    As limited as Kimmerlings and ben ami's no doubt. Ever considered that you just prefer the Israel friendly version of events for ideological reasons? Please don't be too shocked. In fact the Arab position even after Khartoum was never as recalcitrant as the hasbara version would have us believe. As for Eban changing his mind, enough of the transparent apologetics.

Before that Jerusalem had been 'unified' in the teeth of strong opposition from the Americans (the Israelis argued, with a fine feeling for semantic subtleties, that 'unification' was not the same as 'annexation'). Mid August far reaching plans for the settlement of the West Bank had been adopted. eh?
