Netanyahu rejects withdrawal to 1967 borders

Netanyahu rejects withdrawal to 'indefensible' 1967 borders

"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday Israel would object to any withdrawal to "indefensible" borders, adding he expected Washington to allow it to keep major settlement blocs in any peace deal.

In a statement after President Barack Obama's speech outlining Middle East strategy, Netanyahu said before heading to Washington that "the viability of a Palestinian state cannot come at the expense of Israel's existence"

In light thereof, how will the Obama Administration react?
