    Why should a peace agreement has to include the withdraw to the 1967 borders? "Futer borders will be determent b negotiations" - that is what the UN asked for and that is what Oslo agreed on. If the palestinians don't want to talk but decide to elect a party which calles for the destrucction of the talk partner. Israel has to act without a partner. Second thought: What did the arabs do in 1948, 1967, 1973? They started a war. What may happen if one starts a war and loses it? He may lose terretory. - Germany started a war in 1939 and they lost that war. What happend was that germany lost a potential part of its pre-war terretory. And now sain germany (exept a few facist neo-nazi right wing people) came up with the idea that the terretory should be returnd. The arabs wanted to destroy israel, started wars and lost them all. Now they have to accept the situation they created.
