Obama,even though he caught lots of flack, didnt say anything that hadnt been official US policy in the preceeding admins<quoted text>
George Marshall advised Truman against it and there has been no peace since (or before for that matter).
Much sympathy for the Jewish people after the war; and guilt too. Rightfully so.
What do you think of Obama's previous suggestion of '67 borders of course with land swaps?
Bill CLinton said it concisely around 2002 - to the effect of: At the end of the day there is only ONE possible configuration for a solution. He figured it out to the last acre in his last ditch attempt at solving it during the waning moments of his presidency. The ISraelis know this, as well as the pragmatic of the Palestinians. The land swaps are all known.
The problem is that no Palestinian leader is willing to admit to their people that the right of return will never happen. Compensation can happen, but Israel proper will NEVER absorb the descendents of the original Palestinians.
Even Jerusalem is solveable. East Jerusalem minus the holy sites to the Palestinians.
