What makes a temporary armistice line marking where Israeli and Transjordanian forces ceased firing on each other in 1949 the only sacrosanct and inviolable borders for a "Palstinian" state that heretofore has never, ever existed in human history? While there is a consensus among the Israeli public (and I am part of that consensus) that Israel must agree to territorial compromise and cede land to allow the Palestinian Arabs to seek self-determination in areas where they constitute a majority, this so-called "Palestinian" land is in reality disputed territory. They would be likely to get a significant chunk of the territory they claim, but they insist on getting *all* of the territory that never was theirs in the first place and reject solutions that could satisfy their needs because of some arbitrary armistice line between two different sovereign states.
