A Sunday Times report revealed that "Barack Obama is to pursue an ambitious peace plan in the Middle East involving the recognition of Israel by the Arab world in exchange for its withdrawal to pre-1967 borders" (Nov. 16, 2008).

If this report is true, Israel's future may very well be bleak. Land for peace has had a terrible track record in Israel. The country gained key strategic military advantages from the 1967 war, but would lose them if this peace plan were to be implemented—rendering the nation much more vulnerable to Arab attacks.
