    The basic moral question the Israeli left has to ask itself is: what is the moral justification for Jews to live within the 67' green line. When they answer this one, they might have a better perspective enabling them to adjust their agenda and become more influential.So far we haven't heard any viable answer from the left, except for the 47' UN declaration. But this is morally very weak: it gives Jews permission to live only within UN 47' declaration borders, and more importantly, it implicitly permits the UN to modify its decision or even cancel it.
