    Before getting so angry look at the facts: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli_West_Bank_barrier (an article with reputable sources, if you look at the bottom) Only 12% of the West Bank is on the Israeli side of the fence. Some will say 12% too much, but it's still a small number compared to what so many furious people believe. The security fence route is in fact more or less the 1967 Green Line. Negotiations based on 'the security fence route' is another way of saying negotiations based on the 1967 borders, and mostly involve how many settlement blocs near the border will be annexed (few percent of West Bank), and which parts of Israel near the Green Line can be incorporated into a future Palestine to compensate. It's the same old formula as before, which the international community supports fully.
