President Obama explains borders stance

At an annual gathering of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Sunday, Israel’s staunchest American supporters were paid a visit by President Obama, Reuters reported, and the president sought to further explain his administration’s position on the need for Israel to return to its pre-1967 borders. The matter is a delicate one, as Israel’s supportive lobbyists believe as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu does, that the pre-1967 borders are not defensible. Protesters in Israel have made their disagreements with President Obama clear, expressed in signs that read “Israel Won’t Commit Suicide” and “Israel Can’t Be Divided” and “Obama Change Your Mind,” as the Jerusalem Post reported.

  1. Looking at the current map a solution to the problem of borders seems to be almost impossible. Therefore it will have to come to the ONE state solution. In the ONE state of Israel / Palestine the non-Jewish population will have a majority. And of course every one supports democracy. Therefore democratically elected the Arabs will provide the President of the new one state of Israel-o-Palestine.
