Marino: Israel Cannot Give Up Territory

“Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to the Joint Meeting of Congress today was one of the clearest, most heartfelt, and compassionate pleas regarding Middle East peace that has been delivered in this country or around the world.

“He reached out to the Palestinian people more so than ever in a powerful speech that had members of Congress on both sides of the aisle hanging on every word.

...“I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Netanyahu. Israel cannot give up territory and return to the 1967 borders as suggested by President Obama in an ill-timed statement last week.

The choices for peace are one of two, and not because of malevolence but because of the nature of human tribes:

Either give Palestinians full Israeli citizenship, something not in lieu with the Jewish State.

Or, give enough land back (from the 1967 war) for Palestinians to found their own viable country.

Given historical precedence I personally think Israels best choice is to do good with the Palestinians, ask them, so to speak, to be their shield against anti-semites of all creeds. Not to do the opposite.
