PM Netanyahu has always argued for decades now that making concessions to the Palestinians or terrorists by giving into the terms the international community is expecting, that is, agreeing to borders of 1967 and sharing Jerusalem, etc. is a sign of weakness on behalf of Israel. But this is the perpetual excuse to never having to do anything in the first place. It's not a sign of capitulation because after the Six Days War in 1967 the terms under U.N.S.C. R. 224 and 338, Israel agreed to exchange the conquered land for recognition by the Arab states and includes the Palestinians, which they've said they would do. There would be nothing legitimate to dispute in international terms if Israel is pushed beyond this objective in ending the conflict. The world functions, usually, with reason.
