Here is what the president said today, regarding Israel and the Palestinians:

The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states. The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state.

Here is a map of Israel’s territorial borders as they now stand. Click to enlarge.

How does one build a “contiguous” state for the Palestinians who live on the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip, with a swath of Israeli territory between them? A corridor doesn’t seem to satisfy use of the word “contiguous.”
