Netanyahu Says Obama Endangering Israel Before Oval Office Talks

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Barack Obama’s call for a Palestinian state “based on the 1967 lines” risks endangering his country, just hours before the two are scheduled to meet in the Oval Office.

Netanyahu responded to Obama’s speech on the Middle East yesterday by saying that such borders would be “indefensible” and could leave major Jewish population centers behind Palestinian lines. Obama and Netanyahu are scheduled to meet at 11:15 a.m. today.
