I fail to understand why the 1967 border needs to be sidestepped. Maybe some of the talkbakers will take this up and explain. But I am afraid that, as always when Peres is involved, it is much sizzle and no stake. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    My understanding is that 1967 is to be the basis for negotiating landswaps. It will not be the final border but merely the starting point for the landswaps, so why is Israel keen on evading it? I also did not understand how the two options mentioned in the article (exchange of territory and compensation for the blocks) can be options for bypassing the 1967 border. How can these two options be negotiated without a starting point, and if 1967 is not the starting point then what is?
