Binyamin Netanyahu rejects calls for Palestinian state within 1967 lines

Source: The Guardian

Binyamin Netanyahu has vowed to rebuff international demands to allow a Palestinian state with a border based on the pre-1967 Green Line and its capital in East Jerusalem, as hardline pro-settler parties and factions are expected to make unprecedented gains in Tuesday's election.

"When they say, 'Go back to the 67 lines,' I stand against. When they say, 'Don't build in Jerusalem,' I stand against," the Israeli prime minister told Channel 2 in a television interview.

"It's very easy to capitulate. I could go back to the impossible-to-defend 67 lines, and divide Jerusalem, and we would get Hamas 400 metres from my home." He would not allow that to happen under his leadership, he said.

Likud supporters on Sunday draped the walls of Jerusalem's Old City with huge banners proclaiming "Only Netanyahu will protect Jerusalem" and "Warning: 67 border ahead".

1. Neocon Jerk!

With this man in charge, peace will never come between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Netanyahu's political party is as bad as the arrogant, Bush Neocons who have screwed up the world for year to come.

9. The question for the international community is how to respond...

obviously, Israel isn't going to allow a Palestinian state and they're not interested in negotiating with the Palestinians. The challenge for the world is to either accept things as they are or take active steps to change things.
