    So Johnboy if all the PLO wants is "A state with borders that correspond to the lines of June 1967, East Jerusalem as the capital, and some arrangement that "solves" the refugee problem" then why didnt Arafat accept Ehud Barak's offer at camp david? Why didnt Abbas accept Ehud Olmert's offer at Taba? In each of those offers a Palestinian state with over 96% of the West Bank and Gaza and land swaps (there will never be 2 states on the exact borders of 1967, get over it, and really Israel should not have to abide by the 1967 borders becuase they WON a DEFENSIVE war), a capital in East Jerusalem, and billions of dollars for the refugees (The Palestinian "refugees" will never be allowed to come back into Israel because then there wouldnt be a Jewish state, get over it)
