THAT UNILATERAL NATIONHOOD BIT IS WORKING, EH?:

TV: Israel agrees to negotiate over pre-'67 lines (IAN DEITCH, 8/01/11, Associated Press)

In a speech about the Middle East in May, Obama proposed negotiations based on the pre-1967 line with agreed swaps of territory between Israel and a Palestinian state. Netanyahu reacted angrily, insisting that Israel would not withdraw from all of the West Bank, though that was not what Obama proposed.

Now Netanyahu is basically accepting that framework, according to Channel 2 TV, offering to trade Israeli territory on its side of the line for West Bank land where its main settlements are located.
