…for our stunningly brilliant President’s that pre-1967 borders in Israel means bringing back East Jerusalem.
The president, however, told the BBC that he wasn’t discussing Jerusalem, saying “our argument is let’s get started on a conversation about territory and about security, that doesn’t resolve all the issues, you still end up having the problem of Jerusalem and you still end up having the problem of refugees, but if we make progress on what two states would look like, and a reality sets in among the parties, that this is how it is going to end up, then it becomes easier for both sides to make difficult concessions to resolve those two other issues.”
Two things about this:
- To build on what I told Jake Tapper, this is like advocating that Germany be split back into East and West Germany and then look surprised when somebody brings up Berlin.
- Dear God, but even the summaries of what the President says are tedious.
