    Even though the 67 borders were not final and the un resolution says to be negotiated. UN before 48 wanted the old city as an international one certainly not a palestinian one. Palestinians need to understand they weren't final borders and it was meant to be negotiated. Jordan ripped out jews from the old city and destroyed the synogagues and now abbas thinks he can get the jewish quarter with the so called pre 67 borders which were only to stop actions during the war. Who gets the armenian quarter. You can't just declare a state on 67 borders and wipe out jews from where they were the majority in east jerusalem before 1948. This is a declaration of unilaterism that doesn't make sense. You need two sides to get a solution. Then you forget about hamas in gaza and palestinians want right of return for two arab states.
