Ten days after again calling for a two-state solution, President Bush outlines America’s geographic preferences for a final Palestinian-Israeli agreement. This includes non-Palestinian return to pre-1967 Israel (insuring Israel of its Jewish majority), and incorporation of some Israeli built settlements in the West Bank, in what could be newly drawn borders between an Israeli and Palestinian state. This is precedent setting for the US president to state publicly his granular preferences in a future negotiated settlement.
