Israel and Palestine: Achieving a Two-State Solution
(Visit: Using specially commissioned interactive maps to display alternative solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, David Makovsky and Ghaith al-Omari argue that a two-state solution based on land-swaps is the only viable one for the future. The core principle of these swaps is to reconcile the Palestinian demand for a return to the pre-1967 lines with Israel's desire to include as many of the West Bank's 300,000 settlers in Israel proper as possible. They argue that any feasible scenario must include Israel's granting Palestinians arable land from within Israel's pre-1967 border in exchange for annexed settlement blocs (clusters of settlements) and that it is essential that, for any land annexed by Israel as part of a deal, Palestinians receive equal amounts of land. David Makovsky is the Director of the Project on the Middle East Peace Process at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Ghaith al-Omari is the Executive Director of the American Task Force on Palestine. Series: Herman P. and Sophia Taubman Endowed Symposia in Jewish Studies [Public Affairs] [Show ID: 24895]

International Law Expert: Israel Is Not an “Occupier”
Israel Is Not an “Occupier”
International law defines “occupation” as one power occupying the lands of a foreign sovereign. In Israel's case, Israel is not occupying any foreign sovereign’s land; Israel entered the area known as the West Bank in 1967 and took over the authority to administer the land from Jordan, which was never considered to be a sovereign in the area.
In actual fact, Israel and the Jewish people have got claims to the area that go far back into history. Anybody who reads the Bible can appreciate the fact that there is a very solid historic legal basis to the claim of Israel with respect to the territories and therefore Israel considers the territories not to be occupied, not to be Palestinian, but as in dispute.
We appreciate that the Palestinians also have claims with respect to the territory. Israel considers that its claims are far better based and better documented than any other claims, but Israel is committed to conduct negotiations with the Palestinians in order to find a permanent settlement to the issue.
The Jordanians, who occupied the territory after the 1948 war, annexed it, but this annexation was never really recognized or acknowledged by the international community. At a later stage the king of Jordan voluntarily gave up any Jordanian sovereignty or claim to the territories to the Palestinian people. So the Jordanians came and went, and the issue remains an issue between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
“Palestinian Territories” Is Not a Legal Term
The international community’s constant referral to the “Palestinian territories” is a complete fallacy and has absolutely no legal or political basis. There has never been a Palestinian state, as such, and therefore the territories never belonged to any Palestinian entity. There's no international agreement, there's no contract, there's no treaty, and there's no binding international resolution that determines that the territories belong to the Palestinians.
In actual fact, even the Palestinians themselves, in the Oslo agreement that they signed with Israel, acknowledge the fact that the ultimate permanent status of the territory is to be determined by negotiations. Therefore, even the Palestinians accept the fact that this is not Palestinian territory, its disputed territory whose status is yet to be settled.
If the local population owns land, then the administrative power isn't allowed to take the land or use it. But if the land is not private, the administering power can use the land and enjoy the fruits of the land until sovereignty has been finally determined. So Israel justifiably can use land which is not private land, which is public land, for establishing settlements as long as these settlements don't take away the private rights of the local population. Therefore, in our opinion, the settlements are not illegitimate.
The Settlements Are Not Illegitimate
There's one other point, the issue of settlements is a negotiating issue. The Palestinians have agreed with the Israelis that the issue of settlements is one of the issues on the permanent status negotiating table. Therefore, anybody who comes along and claims that Israel’s settlements are illegitimate – whether it's the EU, whether it’s individual governments, whether it is the secretary of state of the United States, who said so specifically, or the spokesman of the State Department – they’re prejudging a negotiating issue, which is clearly incompatible with any negotiating principle.
These are issues that have to be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians. Therefore, nobody can claim that the settlements are illegitimate or that they're illegal, as such. They have to be negotiated between the parties.
There's No Such Thing as 1967 Borders
There's no such thing as 1967 borders. A border is a line between two sovereign entities. In 1967, there was a ceasefire line that had existed since the 1948-1949 war between the Arab states and Israel and after Israel declared its independence. The Jordanians insisted on inserting in the Armistice Agreement of 1949 a provision which says that the armistice demarcation line is not the final border. Final borders can only be determined in peace negotiations between the parties. So “1967 borders” is a non-existent term and anybody using this term – again, including the U.S. administration and the EU – are simply being misled.

Israels Defensible Borders
The Jewish Standard
Ever wonder why Israel doesn't just withdraw to its 1948 borders, approved by the UN. Wouldn't life be simpler? Wouldn't the wars end? This video, by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, made prior to the current conflict in Gaza, sums up the perspective opposing withdrawal from the land won in the 1967 Six Day War quite well
Fmr. Israeli Ambassador: 1967 Borders Are Indefensible

Evolution of Israel & Palestine borders (1946-2016)
How much did Israel acquire? How much did Palestine lose?
The lighter colours mean that the terrain was attacked, disputed or claimed by another country (as the Zone C of West Bank is still claimed by PA, although these territories are ruled by Israel)
I'm neither anti-Palestinian nor anti-Israeli. The borders are mainly approximate and some colors may not be perfect, I was just testing my movie editor ;) Enjoy :)
Obama on Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Borders Should Be Based on 1967 Lines
In a speech on the Middle East Thursday, President Obama gave what was to some an unexpected stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in stating that the United States believes the borders for the two countries should follow 1967 lines. The president began his remarks on the region by discussing the challenges plaguing both nations, but saying that the Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves and reach their full potential in a sovereign and contiguous state.
President Obama concluded by saying that in order to reach a resolution that is just and fair, an agreement must respect the rights of both Israelis and Palestinians. In the end, he said, the choice must be between hate and hope; the shackles of the past, or the promise of the future.

John McCain Reacts to President's 1967 Border Plan for Israel
Last night, John McCain spoke to Sean Hannity about the president's remarks that the Israel-Palestine borders should follow lines set up in 1967. McCain said, We all want peace talks, we all want a settlement. However, McCain says you have to get both sides to sit down at the table, and that If you truly are committed to change, first thing you need to do is commit to your recognition of the right of the state of Israel to exist.
