Hamas: Let’s discuss 1948 lines
The difference in tone between US President Barack Obama’s two policy speeches on Mideast peace sparked outrage among Palestinian leaders Monday.
Hamas spokesman Mahmoud al-Zahar responded by saying, “Clearly Obama’s plan is no different, aside from a few small details, from that of George Bush. Now he refers to the 1967 borders as sacred, but who says we accept them, and that we won’t speak of the ‘48 lines?” he told al-Emarat al-Youm.
I have a better idea - let’s discuss the 1922 lines, before most of “Palestine” was given to the Hashemites and called Transjordan.
