President Obama said last Thursday the United States believes Israel should go back to the 1967 borders as part of the peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority. In a very unexpected move, on Friday, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "Thanks, but no, thanks!"
The main reason for this is the 1967 borders are simply non-defensible! Israel is surrounded by enemies on every side. The recent uprisings in Egypt, as well as protests in Egypt, as well as Jordan are giving way to anti-Israel protests in both countries.
While President Mubarak was tolerant towards Israel and kept the peace agreement with her, and King Abdullah still is, the forces on the ground are taking advantage of the mass demonstrations and inciting the people against Israel, demanding to break these agreements and destroy Israel.
This week's video was sent out by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. It shows with clear animation and outstanding graphics why the 1967 borders are simply indefensible, reiterating again how critical the issue of Israel's security is... WATCH VIDEO
