In a speech to the Arab world--even though he's not president of the United Arab States, President Obama called for Israel to retreat to its pre-1967 borders. From a security standpoint, it's analogous to the United States surrendering California to Japan in 1941. Does anyone think a West Bank Palestine is destined to be a peaceful state like Denmark?
After all, the Gaza Strip turned into a terror enclave almost immediately after the Palestinians took over.
Obama's meeting tomorrow with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Benjamin Netanyahu will be interesting. Already he has derided Obama's proposal, saying it would leave Israel "indefensible."
