Obama reaffirms to a Jewish lobby in his plan on the 1967 borders

The U.S. president, Barack Obama continues his ground and maintains its particular recipe for peace for the Middle East, which has greatly angered Israel. In a speech to the main Jewish lobby, Obama has maintained its proposal for Israel to reopen negotiations with the Palestinians based on the 1967 borders, which has been flatly rejected by the Government of Benjamin Netanyahu, who already retort saying that "67 borders are indefensible." In that year there was the call of the Six Day War, the third Arab-Israeli conflict, which ended with the Hebrew occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, Gaza, Sinai Peninsula and Golan Heights.

In 1978, as a result of the Camp David accords, Israel returned the Sinai to Egypt. In his first speech as president before the annual conference of AIPAC, the main pro-Israeli lobby in the U.S., the U.S. president said the ties between his country with Israel are "unbreakable", but insisted that the current situation conflict is "unsustainable" and that it is necessary to reopen the peace process.

In your opinion, should Israel would soon reach a peace agreement due to rapidly changing environment that we are living in Arab countries and population growth is occurring in the occupied territories and that may make it increasingly difficult to maintain peace. Despite disagreeing with Obama's proposal, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has been cooperative and is committed to working with the U.S.

president to renew the peace process with Palestine. "I share the desire of President Obama and I appreciate their efforts in the past and present to achieve this goal. I am determined to work together with President Obama to find ways to resume the peace process. Peace is a basic need for all of us "Netanyahu has said, reports Emergui Sal.

"We have to face some facts. The first is that the number of Palestinians living west of the Jordan River is growing rapidly, and is fundamentally reshaping the demographics of both Israel and the Palestinian territories. This makes it increasingly hard-sin a peace agreement, maintain Israel as a Jewish and democratic state, "Obama said in his speech.

Another reality is that "technology is becoming increasingly difficult to defend Israel in the absence of a peace agreement." And the third factor is the emergence of a "new Arab generation is reshaping the region. Achieving a just and lasting peace can no longer depend on one or two Arab leaders.

Looking forward, there are millions of Arab citizens who have to see that it is possible to achieve a lasting peace. " "We can not afford to lose another decade or two decades or three decades, to achieve peace," stressed the U.S. president. "The world is moving too fast, and the challenges facing Israel will only grow.

A delay only undermine Israel's security and the possibility that his people have the peace you deserve," Obama said to the members AIPAC of the Palestinian people have the right to govern itself as a sovereign state, and warned that international attempts to isolate Israel "will gain strength in the absence of a credible process towards peace." He said, however, that the U.S.

will oppose any attempt at the United Nations or other international forums to isolate Israel. In his speech also referred to the conflict with Iran and recalled that his Government had sanctions imposed on this country, the toughest so far, their attempts to stop sponsoring terrorism. Obama also attacked the Palestinian reconciliation agreement between Fatah, which governs the West Bank, and the radical group Hamas, in charge of Gaza, which is "an enormous obstacle to peace."
