This is an interesting condition which Israel has continuously rejected since UN Resolution 242 was issued. This would include withdrawal from Jerusalem as well as the West Bank and Israel has been adament about not withdrawing from either for decades. Of course what is the impact on Jewish citizens who have occupied these lands since the 1967 6-Day War? I have personally expressed the belief that the only way peace can be established between Israel and the Palestinians hinges on Israel's compliance with previously issued US Security Council Resolutions which is fundamentally what the Quartet seems to be putting forward as a requirement of the Peace Talks. Will Israel agree to these conditions? That is going to be the big questions. We certainly know that it is exactly what the Palestinians have been asking for as a condition of peace.
