The program has a -- -- like -- -- -- good morning -- -- Dario thank god very good soul.
The Israeli borders prior to -- the -- in section seven.
War war what.
Well in nineteen there they actually in 1949 armistice lines which came out of war of independence for Israel.
Launched by five Arab countries -- -- the United Nations voted to partition plan.
To create an Arab and a Jewish state the Arabs rejected it the Jews accepted it.
They -- -- -- moved ahead to create the State of Israel the Arabs went to war.
The outcome of the war created -- what became the 1949 armistice lines which remained in effect.
And there were other wars in the interim.
And in 1967.
The Arab countries then launched coordinated attack.
Which resulted in Israel capturing the Sinai from Egypt the Golan Heights -- Syria and the West Bank from Jordan which occupied it from 4767.
But was only recognized by England -- Pakistan as the -- there.
So the size of Israel departure of the part of the sexes seven and Persian culture Goodman's go to war -- -- specifically.
Merrill wasn't allowed a bit of Manhattan one.
Well actually -- -- point it's nine miles wide which is less than the length of Broadway.
And that Billy north south and -- goes from the Lebanese border to a lot but the width of the country you literally can penetrate with a rifle which is why -- issued that that becomes primary.
And why this president comments were so controversial.
Is that US is always said that they should be defensible borders and defensible borders.
I have to be defined not just stingy -- -- but the ability of Israel to protect its citizens because this.
Areas that you're talking about like the West Bank you can fire rockets.
That could hit 70% of the Israeli population.
When they withdrew from Gaza unilaterally.
Giving it to the Palestinians.
They ended up with.
Over 8000 rockets and in five years and -- situation where Hamas the terrorist organization supports its destruction is in control when they withdrew from Lebanon on.
And gave everything back up to the border.
And recognized by the UN is having fully.
If you for nothing in return they ended up with -- -- 40000 rockets on the border.
-- also live big news there west has now watched.
The -- now instead well depends where you and it's not a uniform line ought to well artwork will weren't used to -- nine miles whereas I just don't know would be about seventeen miles.
-- -- -- -- So classic the big difference in terms of missile -- capacity for missiles that hit.
Or -- Israel having the high points because they're elevated areas and that it along the West Bank.
Which would give it the ability at least a control report that's coming of course and not giving them the high plate -- -- terrorists to launch rockets.
Unsettle us so -- lot of French but to tell if you don't want to -- not send him -- -- -- up to the -- suspicious today and what global war -- -- from what it just means what compelled him to adopt this posture.
I'm not sure why he.
Had a -- -- speech that was giving about the Arab Spring -- talking about trying to reestablish American relevance in the Middle East.
And you know our our standing there was badly hurt by the way we handled the Mubarak think even for those who -- Mubarak.
But America's positions -- seemed to waffle and generally are our standing in the region.
As every Arab leaders told us and and meetings even this week that he that America it is marginalized.
And I think -- wanted to reassert the relevant the United States.
Which is worthwhile and that we want to help -- democracy in the region I think it was a mistake -- to throw in this issue which was 20% of the speech but has.
Completely eclipse the other issue.
The timing is also strange may be that you talked about the rapture he wanted to get -- in before tomorrow.
But I think -- That's coming right after -- -- Hamas merge.
When now a terrorist organization is part of the Palestinian Authority government.
To appear to reward them at this time or to appear to make concessions at the time.
Doesn't make much sense.
All the presents sudden seizure if you're aware that Israel doesn't apply and there'll never be paid -- -- -- out I'm not sure but.
Saw him in my -- -- or or or him or there may never reduce anyway.
What one of the things when the president came into office and and we should note there were many positive things and speak but when the -- came into office.
He kept saying that the key issue in the Middle East.
-- the Arab Israeli conflict as we saw overdo -- months it is not the key issue Iran that the key issue the desire for democracy jobs of the things those of the key issues that motivate and and -- like this is this sensitive issue.
But the way you resolved it.
Is not to comment and put four proposals -- now the Palestinians will pocket what they say is the president's statement about 67 borders with adjustments.
-- with swaps which means that you're actually taking land away from the drop from pre 67.
And the this the context that that was created when he made the reference to the return of refugees the right of return at the Palestinians -- -- which is neither right there won't be -- When Israel was created several 100000 Palestinians.
At the urging of their leaders and complex situation left.
900000 Jews are driven out of Arab countries but nobody talks about -- and now they're talking about the right of return to Israel whereas the creation of the Palestinian state is where they should be returning to and the president just saying it's the final status issue.
As well as Jerusalem.
Stepped up the situation where the Palestinian -- state we're -- negotiate on the border like the president said then we'll talk about the real issues still to the once it should be addressed first.
Course are -- some college supposed some Palestinians.
Where you can make a deal was we all know brought a lot of Hamas aims to bring.
And a driver's -- here or there but the there's no deal would be some more -- although the decision.
There's -- nonexistent aren't.
That's exactly right good they're not sure that tell you there is no negotiations with them and even with Fatah itself when a -- Statement they don't talk about.
One -- to to make this progress in order to create its statement etc.
they talk about going back to the 67 -- -- 47 situation not sixty that the president.
And and the PLO and thought that were created at 64 before Israel within the territories.
So Israel has indicated they're prepared to make really far reaching concessions for negotiations and when -- currency.
Primary but not disclosed but not great equipment you know they keep saying -- but instead the bush -- that it's not true what Clinton's parameters which you withdrew when he left office.
Didn't say that 67 borders he talked about swaps and territorial arrangement based on defensible borders.
Or secure and recognized borders which is not synonymous with 67.
Martin -- line announced in our program offering them.
On -- on the bachelor show -- government -- -- -- house.
