    What would you say to Israel for refusing to go back to 1967 borders as "requested" by Obama

    Obama asked Israel to withdraw from occupied lands to the borders of 1967, and they refused. Israel continually disregards  USA attempts at bringing peace to the Middle East and Palestine - If you had the power what would say?

    I would say that it is not Obama's place to 'request' such a thing. It is for the Israelis and Palestinians to be mature enough to figure this out for themselves. If they can't be adults and work this out among themselves, then they shouldn't expect support from anyone else in the process. It is frustrating to watch them squabble like children.

    I think Israel is a very capable nation and does not need Obama or the US to dictate what they need to do.

    How arrogant can we be?

    I would say that it is none of Obama's business what Israel decides to do.  The Palestines who have occupied lands in that area of the country have about as much right to claim a homeland as the illegal aliens here in the USA have at claiming a portion of Arizona.  America and the world need to butt out of the problem and let the Israelis deal with it.  We in America feel that since we through aid money around it gives us some say in the matter, I don't see any interest on the part of the Israelis to committ genocide or other crimes in this process.  Ultimately, this is Israel's problem to address and I seriously doubt Mr. Netenyahu is going to allow Obama to muscle him around on it. In fact, based on Obama's request, I doubt that he has sufficient knowledge of the situation to even be making requests. WB

    I would say there is no reason Israel should take orders from the president of the USA or any other country. Good for you, Israel.

    Israel will NEVER give up its freedom to those Muslims. If you want them to go back to 67 borders than try telling obama to go back before Hawaii and Alaska was a state, then we will talk! ISRAEL FOREVER

    i guess this should be solved amicably and a definite border should be devised that would bring harmony in that region other then that no one can do any thing

    Israel has land give to them by God.  They do not need anyone's help.  They have a purpose.  God will take care of the entire situation.

    Simple. I would say tha the UN resolution 242 says Israel must settle the conflict on a 2 state solution with its borders pre 1967. ITS LAY THEY MUST ACCEPT THE LAW

    It's a silly notion to expect Israel to go back to that pretty much arbitrary document. If the Arabs wanted those borders, then they should have never launched their 'War of Annihilation' when the Jewish refugees declared statehood in '48.

    Every single one of Israel's Arab neighbors refused to accept the new state and launched their entire military resources into an un-instigated conflict against an abused and desperate people at the time of their greatest suffering and need. That was a low, cowardly move on the Arabs' part, and Karma dealt with them quite appropriately by allowing the Israelis to decimate the attackers. The victory came at a cost of many Jewish lives, when 6 million had already just been mercilessly wiped out by Hitler and his Arab henchmen that did the Nazi bidding in the Middle-East at that time. (This is all known and widely accepted historical fact, not any sort of speculation)

    Since the Jews were able to secure a favorable outcome in the face of that sneaky, underhanded aggression, the prior borders were automatically forfeit. Unless, of course, someone can bring all those murdered Jewish refugees back to life and restore all their progeny to boot.

    Further, the Arab political and religious leadership all understand full well the sheer impossibility of that insane and unjust demand. That's precisely why they demand it! If they wanted peace, they would ask for something more realistic - say inter-state cooperation in spheres of technology, energy, education, medicine, and agriculture - something that could actually help the Palestinian Arabs, and something Israel and the Jewish people would gladly agree to in return for peace. Instead, they make impossible demands that would literally cut towns in half and strand entire Jewish populations outside of the IDF umbrella of protection. Asking for 1967 lines is like sending Jason to seek the Golden Fleece - a desperate suicide quest that he's not expected to come back from alive.

    So if I had the power, I would target the Palestinian education system (secular and religious). We will never have peace, until a young generation of Palestinian Arabs wakes up to the extreme, religious-zealotry obsession of their parents, and actually reaches out for peace to their Israeli counterparts...
