    Because what exactly is a "temporary border"? Wouldn't that be something like a temporary marriage? "Hi there pretty mama, how about you and I hooking up in a temporary marriage?" What a promising proposal for the lady; wouldn't you say? Especially coming from a guy known for cheating on every relationship he's ever had(uninterrupted investment in settlement building and infrastructure during negotiations), and for continuing these flings even when he's found out and promises to end them(unwillingness to remove outposts in compliance with the terms of agreements and court orders). I doubt if there'd be any takers. So if Bibi is serious about peace and Palestinian statehood, why not be willing to accept THE border instead of a "temporary" one? What's it going to do for the Palestinians? Not much - EXCEPT, it might lull them into believing progress is being made toward final status. And for Israel? Two things: it'll relieve the pressure from Obama and hopefully buy enough time to see him replaced as president(so Bibi and his coalition can implement their agenda without interference?) Meanwhile, them being "temporary" means that they will be subject to Israel's terms, which if not met, will nullify them and set everything back even further than it is now! And THEN, we'll be hearing the 'newest' line parrotted by the right wing talkbackers: "they had their chance for a state when...yadda-yadda"! And of course, they'll leave about the fact that its map was to have looked like slice of swiss cheese...
