Israeli PM Rebuffs US President Demand

Addressing the US Congress on Tuesday, Netanyahu said that Israel could not return to the "indefensible" borders which existed in 1967.

"Any peace deal must take into account the dramatic demographic changes that have occurred since 1967," he said.

Netanyahu made the remarks after he took the same stance in his address to the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Washington on Monday.

Obama in his Middle East speech last week insisted that the borders issue should be the basis for stalled direct talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.'
