A Good Deal? Jerusalem back to the 4 June 1967 Borders?

Palestinians: U.S. Position Supportive on Borders and Jerusalem (Al-Hayat-Arabic)

Sources in the Palestinian Authority expressed satisfaction Wednesday with the "new ideas" presented by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. A senior Palestinian official told Al-Hayat that Rice presented "an open approach to the resolution of the conflict, and offered an outlook close to that of the Palestinians regarding the cessation of settlement activity, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the 4 June 1967 borders including Jerusalem, and a one-to-one exchange of territory of equal quality between the sides."
