    Some comments. Melissa, the UN accepted Israel with the 1950 boundaries, today known as the 67 (Blue Line/Green Line boundaries). Referring to the 1947 boundaries is ridiculous. The ICJ in their decision determined that all land within the 1967 boundaries was 'not occupied' and therefore was completely within Israeli jurisdiction. The Arab judge issued a dissent which was ignored questioning the legitimacy of Israel in any boundary. In addition, a UNSC resolution recognized the Blue Line as the boundary with Lebanon and condemned Lebanon for kidnapping Israelis on the Israel side of the Blue Line. The Blue Line includes parts of the Galilee not granted to Israel in 1947. Jen, Tony Silver and the rest - be careful what you wish for. If there is a One State Solution, it does not have to include Gaza. There are no Jews there at all. There is nothing in international law requiring a nation to annex territory it doesn't want to. The resulting nation would include 4 million Arabs and 6.5 million Jews. Israel could convert to a district election system (rather than proportional). With gerrymandering, the Jews could maintain a permanent majority in the Knesset while granting the West Bank Arabs full citizen rights.
