I hope the concept of imposing a map defining a Palestinian state's boundaries has been misstated. It is one thing for the US to recognize existing territories within Palestinian control as the independent State of Palestine ( a possibility Obama should make known privately to Netanyahu) --but is altogether another policy if the US should choose to recognize disputed areas as Palestine without Israeli agreement. The future of the disputed areas must be decided by agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians.
