    are two different things. He thought the Green Line an unsuitable boundary. So what, the wording doesn't mention the Green Line? What he wrote though was that Israel must get out of occupied territories. What does that mean exactly? The land that Israel occupies is everything BEYOND THE 1947 BORDERS, which is the only land it has ever declared sovereignty over. Harzion and others need to take this simple fact on board: Israel has never declared sovereignty over the land it won in 1948, so it is occupied territory - yes, Beersheba, Sederot, land bordering Gaza and much of the North. Caradon's wording lleaves open a Pal claim to these areas. When the Palestinians offer to settle for the Green Line or thereabouts, they are generously not pressing their claim, so far, to these parts of Israel. Generous or foolish of them, who is to say? I didn't need to check Wikipedia for these basics Harzion, it is all well known and pretty basic stuff!
