Neither Israel nor the Arabs have accepted the cease fire lines from 1949.
There is a complete falsehood presented in the United Nation. It is called “the 1967 borders” of Israel, borders that the state of Israel is accused of not “respecting”.
Before 1967, the “borders” around Israel was only a cease fire agreement between Israel and its neighbor’s. The Arab League did not even accept the United Nation vote that approved the Partition plan presented in 1947.
So were are the “1967 borders”?
Israel has demanded that the Arab League shall recognize the state of Israel formed in 1948. Not even that, the great majority of Muslim nations have done.
Till the Islamic World accept that there will be a Jewish statehood in the Middle East, there seems to be nothing to “negotiate” about. All “peace talks” becomes political theaters.
This is the official Israeli stand on the present “border disputes”:
The 1967-borders do not exist and have no basis in history, law, or fact.
The only line that ever existed was the 1949 armistice demarcation line, based on the ceasefire lines of the Israeli and Arab armies pending agreement on permanent peace.
The 1949 armistice agreements specifically stated that such lines have no political or legal significance and do not prejudice future negotiations on boundaries.
