Bush's Historic Non-Concession



Sharon and Jewish Republicans have been endlessly trumpeting Bush's historic non-concession that Israel can keep some of the 67 territories, particularly those around major population centers. Of course there is nothing historic or any concession about this whatsoever.

"We are not the ones to say where other nations should draw lines between them that will assure each the greatest security. It is clear, however, that a return to the situation of June 4, 1967 will not bring peace." President Lyndon Johnson September 10, 1968

"Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338... rest on two principles, Israel may administer the territory until its Arab neighbors make peace; and when peace is made, Israel should withdraw to 'secure and recognized borders', which need not be the same as the Armistice Demarcation Lines of 1949." Lyndon B. Johnson, U.S. President

"I have personally followed and supported Israel's heroic struggle for survival since the founding of the state of Israel thirty-four years ago: in the pre-1967 borders, Israel was barely ten miles wide at its narrowest point. The bulk of Israel's population lived within artillery range of hostile Arab armies. I am not about to ask Israel to live that way again." Ronald Reagan, U.S. President

Historic concession? What a crock!
