Pawlenty: No Return to ’67 Borders

Tim Pawlenty’s office sent out a statement this afternoon condemning President Obama’s call for a return to the 1967 borders between Israel and Palestine:

President Obama’s insistence on a return to the 1967 borders is a mistaken and very dangerous demand.  The city of Jerusalem must never be re-divided. To send a signal to the Palestinians that America will increase its demands on our ally Israel, on the heels of the Palestinian Authority’s agreement with the Hamas terrorist organization, is a disaster waiting to happen.  At this time of upheaval in the Middle East, it’s never been more important for America to stand strong for Israel and for a united Jerusalem.
