Trep & commenters discuss “the 2-state solution”

A comment to this post by David Bogner/Treppenwitz:

"There has never been any political leader in the "Palestinian" camp who has said that if we return to pre-67 borders (an insane and impractical proposition unto itself), they will relinquish all other claims on Israeli land and Israeli blood.

And a comment (in response, as it were), to Trep's follow-up post:

“Israel was formed under a U.N. charter that assumed 2 countries-- or at least 2 sovereign entities-- would exist in the space between the Jordan River and the Mediteranean Sea. It is true that the Jewish entity that existed in 1948 was savagely attacked by many Arab countries, and that we won the war and even increased the size of our country, based on armistice lines that were accepted by the U.N., but that does not abrogate the original U.N. partition plan. That is why the world expects a Palestinian State within Israel's present borders. Fair? Probably not. Legal? I'm afraid so. . . . "
