Netanyahu says Israel cannot return to 1967 lines

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
In his speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee Conference in Washington, DC on Monday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has rejected the settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian border conflict that dates back to 1967.
In a report by Arutz Sheva, he said that the conflict between his country and the Palestine "has raged for nearly a century because the Palestinians refuse to end it. They refuse to accept the Jewish State. This is what this conflict has always been about. There are many issues linked to this conflict.
"We can, we must resolve them. But we can only make peace with the Palestinians if they’re prepared to make peace with the Jewish State."
The 61-year-old Jewish leader promised that he will discuss about the problems in the Middle East, a nuclear Iran, and outline his vision for peace in the region during his speech at the US Congress on Tuesday.
Netanyahu added, "It’s time to stop blaming Israel for all the region’s problems."
The Israel-Palestinian conflict has eluded me for years. For those who want to understand where the problem stem from, I appended an educational 57-minute YouTube documentary movie that explains the conflict as viewed from both sides.
The Iron Wall, as the name implies, is the creation of boundaries within that country, which drove away the Palestinians leaving them with no territories at all.
According to the docu, the Israeli government built resettlement areas in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and offered beautiful, comfortable and affordable dwellings to the Jews without their knowledge that the land is a disputed area.
It will be seen that the Palestinian communities eventually became divided created by the new settlement areas leaving them with the refuse of the Jews who are living in comfort.
During the creation of the760-kilometer long and eight-meter tall concrete wall that stretched across the whole country, several Palestinians were left without livelihood and became separated from their jobs and family members.
