    "There has never been a sovereign State called Palestine that was ruled by Palestinians, thus that country has no official borders. Israel has also never finalized its borders." The idea is to create such a state, within the boundaries of the West Bank and Gaza. "Thus, final borders will be determined via negotiation (not Palestinian terror wars)." Correct. But first Israel has to stop building illegal settlements on land that is not theirs. Then, and only then, should the Palestinians agree to negotiations. "There is nothing "holy" about the `67 line, it is just the place where an Arab war of aggression ended (in defeat, as usual)." More correct would be to say that Israel enjoyed military supremacy in the 1960's due to immense technological, logistical and strategical support from the U.S., while the Arabs enjoy a tactical edge over Israel today due to the effective nature of guerrila warfare against a large army trained mainly for large-scale warfare. It is a fact that in the last decade Israel has taken drubbing after drubbing from both the Hizbolla and Hamas. Today, the Arabs have nothing to feel ashamed about.
