Netanyahu: "Only Peace That Will Endure Is One Based On Reality"

"The only peace that will endure is one that is based on reality, on unshakable facts. I think for there to be peace, the Palestinians will have to accept some basic realities. The first is that while Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to the 1967 lines. Because these lines are indefensible. Because they don't take into account certain changes that have taken place on the ground, demographic changes that have taken place over the last 44 years," Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said at a joint press availability with President Obama.

Remember that before 1967, Israel was all of 9 miles wide. It was half the width of the Washington beltway. These were not the boundaries of peace. They were the boundaries of repeated wars because the attack on Israel was so attractive for them. We can't go back to those indefensible lines and we're going to have to have a long-term military presence along the Jordan [River]," Netanyahu said.
