    "What justification do the Palestinians have for demanding 1967 "borders"?" It is this: they are entitled to a state within the borders defined within the Partition Plan of 1947, but they are willing to settle for a state with borders defined by the Green Line of 1949. That is an extraordinarily generous concession to Israel, because it means that Israel ends up with twice as much territory as it is legally entitled to claim since, of course, the state of Israel currently only has clear legal title to the territory allocated to it by that same Partition Plan.
