All, This is fine. Stop salivating. The recognition will be based on 1967 borders but the parties 'can' negotiate changes based on exchange of territory. Johnboy, Ivar, Mark of Lewiston expect that this will result in a forced expulsion of Jews from beyond the Green Line. Actually, this will be a claim but the de facto border will be the one to which Israel withdraws (or doesn't withdraw). The agreement that sets up Palestine will be the end of all claims against Israel (SCR 242 & 338). That is the other side of Intl Law. The side that Johnboy rejects. Once the Pals declare their state, Lebanon and Syria will expel their Palestinians. Israel will not need to entertain any further negotiation on the Right of Return. The 'early recognition' is designed to give both sides an incentive to complete negotiating a border within two years. Those who think that this gives the Pals an incentive to insist on 'every inch' result, don't understand negotiations.
