Obama Wants Israel Back to 1967 Borders

Saturday, 15 Nov 2008 06:17 PM

President-elect Barack Obama intends to pursue a Mideast peace policy that calls on Israel to revert to its pre-1967 borders in return for official diplomatic recognition by the Arab world.

A senior Obama adviser told the London Times that Obama will throw his support behind a 2002 Saudi peace initiative that also has been endorsed by Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, the Arab League, and Israeli President Shimon Peres.

Under the plan:

  • Israel would be able to veto the return of Arab refugees expelled in 1948.

  • Israel would restore the Golan Heights to Syria.

  • Palestinians would be allowed to establish a state capital in east Jerusalem.

    According to the senior adviser, Obama has said privately that Israel would be "crazy" to reject such a plan, since it would "give them peace with the Muslim world."
