After Obama speech, Netanyahu rejects withdrawal to ‘indefensible’ 1967 borders - Haaretz Daily
PM responds to Obama’s proposal for two state solution based on 1967 borders, says such a solution would leave many Israelis in the West bank outside Israel’s borders.
This is actually a pretty clever move, since I believe Israel was consulted before the speech.
Get ready to go through the diplomatic maze:
Because Netanyahu doesn’t like the speech, there is more likelihood that the PA can support the speech, especially if Netanyahu says that Israel will be militarily vulnerable.
If the PA supports the President’s speech, then they tacitly agree to negotiations on boundaries, which is what both the US and Israel have been trying for since President Bush II.
More smoke than Amsterdam.
