Skip to comments.Palestinians say ’67 borders basis for talks
Posted on 07/20/2013 2:12:35 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas agreed to resume peace talks with Israel only after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry gave him a letter guaranteeing that the basis of the negotiations will be Israels pre-1967 borders, two senior Palestinian officials said Saturday.
The officials, both of whom are close to the Palestinian leader and privy to internal discussions, said the U.S. letter also stipulated that both sides are to refrain from taking any steps that would jeopardize the outcome of the talks. Israel is not to issue new tenders for Jewish settlements in the West Bank, while the Palestinians are not to pursue diplomatic action against Israel at any international organizations, the officials said on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to brief the media.
The talks with Kerry were about to collapse, and the letter came as a lifeline in the last minute bargaining, one of the Palestinian officials said.

There is nothing as crazy as trying something over and over and expecting a different result.
This ploy has been tried before and found unacceptable, but old stupid Vietnam Gigolo Kerry will try it again.
What a freaking idiot.
Shhhhh. Kerry is “playing” Secretary of State. Let him have his fun while the adults are still sleeping. It helps to build his self esteem.
LOL ... skerry to the rescue to make certain the talks fail.
And the Mexicans say that the borders between Arizona & Utah, New Mexico & Colorado, and Oklahoma & Kansas are the basis for negotiations with the USA!!!!
Mr. Kerry is from Austria.
They appear to have a built in antiSemitism.
The Collectivists either don't understand that or don't care or both.
i’m ok with taht as long as they are the december ‘67 borders.
You can thank Obama for this. Another foreign policy triumph for the First Idiot.
The Arabs declared war on Israel, lost bad, and now want Israel to restore them to a pre 1967 status.
LMAO, only in the mind of a total idiot does this make sense.
In saunters Kerry... “Peace is at hand.”
Peace at this price? LOL
Heh, heh! December 1967 borders indeed, I agree!
When these idiots say “1967 borders” what that really means are the 1948 ceasefire lines, divided Jerusalem & everything. Never again, no how, no way Jose.
Kerry is such a worthless jerk.
I think this is a great plan...in solidarity we should pull back to moving off all native american occupied lands..pull off manhatten because I am sure the bead value has increased an we ripped them off...we also should pull back from territory we won from Mexico in that war...
This plan sucks yet liberals keep pushing that border...Heck the borders that Israel has won in 1948 and 1967 anad 1973 are hardly defensible.
Don’t give up the Golan, Mr Bibi...
God takes over in the end an Kerry can go to hell
“...while the Palestinians are not to pursue diplomatic action against Israel at any international organizations...”
How about insisting that Hama stop lobbing bombs into Israel?!
This ploy has been tried before and found unacceptable, but old stupid Vietnam Gigolo Kerry will try it again. What a freaking idiot.
Why insult freaking idiots?
I cannot believe that Israel would be so stupid as to accept any treaty with the 67 borders!!! They would give all the West Bank back to the terrorists and that one small portion of Israel near the top of the country would be like SIX MILES WIDE!!! There is no way to keep the terrorists out. They gave them a launch point from Gaza. Now give them the West Bank and the Golan Heights also?!?!?! Surely the PM cannot be this stupid!!!
You may recognize this, it’s called Square One, or more appropriated, Square Zero. Thanks Olog-hai.
[FAIL] Abbas delays decision on peace talks, Kerry to fly home [FAIL]
Obama: Peace is possible, but see the world as Palestinians do

Hopefully everyone in Israel understands that the if the PLO ever did the 67 borders, it would NOT be their last demand.
Perhaps John F’ing Scarry has forgotten that Israel is a sovereign nation and he has no say over their affairs.
yes, but he was “Only Following Orders”
the bigger issue is that Israel has, or gets, leadership not possessed of a suicide complex
“just say No, Bibi, just say No” (you can learn how, it is only two little letters .... try pronouncing “No” in the mirror tonight, ... N....O.....NO” see, you did it!”
