Israel's PM Netanyahu Draws Borders, Sort Of

Bibi's borders are pretty soft.  He claims that the "settlement blocs" will always be part of Israel, but...
"In the afternoon, however, he reaffirmed his commitment to the settlement blocs of Ariel, Ma'aleh Adumim and Gush Etzion when he called them an indisputable part of Israel."

And how does he plan on defending a country as solid as cheap lace?  Besides the fact that neither the Arabs nor Obama nor Europe nor the Israeli Left accept his compromises.  He's playing chess with himself, and he's losing.

His planting a tree in Gush Etzion was no more than a photo op to try to make him look better with the pro-Land of Israel citizen voters.  We didn't fall for it.

If I'm not mistaken Neve Yaakov/Pisgat Zeev and HarChomah were included.
