President Obama To AIPAC: No Return To 1967 Borders


Just three days ago on May 19, I blogged how the media was completely misreporting what President Obama had said in his Middle East speech–a misreportage that strangely continues unabated.

President Obama has just spoken to AIPAC and said again that there will be no return to the 1967 borders: “By definition, it means that the parties themselves – Israelis and Palestinians – will negotiate a border that is different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967.

From the standpoint of the Bush letter in 2004 and from a negotiating standpoint, Obama’s use of ’1967′ is misquided, but in terms of substance–Israel is not being told to return to the 1967 borders. Any reportage otherwise is simply nonsense.
