Love of the Land: Dear Western media, There were NO 1967 'borders'

Love of the Land: Dear Western media, There were NO 1967 'borders': "After the 1967 war, the Security Council debated whether to demand a complete Israeli pullback to the 1949 line, as demanded by the Soviet Union and Arab countries. Their position, however, went nowhere. The Council, both after the 1967 war and again after the 1973 war, adopted resolutions calling on Israel to withdraw from some, but not all, territories captured in these two wars. The Council thus made it crystal-clear that the 1949 armistice line need never become a permanent "border." A "border" between Israel and a Palestinian state remains to be determined as part of a future peace agreement. We ain't there yet. The Post shouldn't jump the gun."
