Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Saturday night that a return to 1967 borders, with a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria, would bring the conflict into Israel's borders, Israel Radio and other Israeli media outlets reported. Establishing a Palestinian state will not bring and end to the conflict, Lieberman was quoted as saying in an address at the Saban Forum in Jerusalem. The Forum's deliberations are supposed to be conducted behind closed doors, but Lieberman's comments were immediately reported by Hebrew news sites and then by Israel Radio. If a Palestinian state were established in Judea and Samaria, the minister reportedly added, Israeli Arabs would demand autonomy in the Galilee and Negev and would build stronger bonds with the Palestinian Authority.
