Ramallah, West Bank - A senior Palestinian official says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s parameters for a peace deal are a “declaration of war” on the Palestinians.

In Tuesday’s speech to the U.S. Congress, Netanyahu said Israel wants to keep key parts of the territories it captured in the 1967 Mideast war, including all of east Jerusalem and parts of the West Bank. The Palestinians want to establish their state in the occupied lands, but are ready for minor lands swaps.

Nabil Shaath, an aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, says Netanyahu “offered a solution based on ignoring the 1967 borders.”

Abbas is convening leaders of the PLO and his Fatah movement on Wednesday to decide on the next move.

Oh... if it is WAR they want, that can easily be obliged. Israel owes these people NOTHING. For the sake of peace and to save lives, some kind of deal will have to, unfortunately, be made. But if these animals think that they will EVER get to dictate the terms, they are sorely mistaken.

Most people agree that the "67 border will be a very rough starting point, and much of the end result will probably fall along those lines, but the final border will be at the sole discretion of the Israeli military and government. If they don't figure that out real quick, there will be war.

OK, big mouth Palestinians. Declare war on Israel. Let's see just how far that will get you. You are only repeating what you've done throughout your brief history. You reject everything that allows Israel to exist. All Netanyahu said was, "Never again."

There will never be peace with these animal. Period that's the fact you can't make peace with people who want to dead. Its just Obama and liberals can't understand that, they embolden them.

What does he mean, "declaration of war"? War against whom? A country they don't recognize and according to Hamas, never will? When HASN'T there been a state of war between the Arabs and the Israelis? Nothing new here.

Bibi was great today. I really am impressed with this guy. One of the strongest leaders around. You could just see how impressed all the people in Congress were. It was like a rock concert with them the groupies and him the star.

Amazing.

Watch the whole thing on CSPAN. It will make you proud to be an American and a Jew.

What can one expect from the savage Palestinians? In 2000, they were offered 98% of the West Bank bank, and rejected that offer. There is no way that hundreds of thousands of so-called Palestinian refugees are going to be allowed to enter EY. As Abba Eban once stated "The Palestinians never miss an opportunity, to miss an opportunity". Incidentally, what ever happened to Hanan Ashrawi? I haven't seen her on tv in years.

The Palistinians never owned any land. They have no right to ask for any. They murder, teach theirn young to hate Israel and the America. They have nursery and kindergarten children strappped with toy suicide belts. These terrorists are animals not people. Israel before the state from 1880 until 1948 paid for thosands of acres of worthless desert land from the Arabs. They paid top money for worthless land that no one wanted. The Palistinians must ready to compensate Israel for this land if they want it. The Arab goverments have proven themselves to be unstable and untrustworthy there is no one to deal with.

very proud of BIBI for taking a stand. But here we go again and the wheel goes round and round. It certainly seems clear the palestinians have no intention of making any peace. It seems to me that they've made up their mind to go about it on their own and get recognition from UN in sept. Although i'm not sure what sort of leverage they think they will gain from that. Unless they deal directly with Israel, nothing will change on the ground.
