The article ponders whether Israel Prime Ministers Benjamin Netanyahu's alleged shift on the issue of borders with Palestine will convince Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas to hold peace negotiations. According to Netanyahu's aides, he will acknowledge the 1967 Green line as reference point for future negotiations on borders Palestine for recognition by Palestine of Israel as a Jewish state. According to the author, Netanyahu's credibility may pose some problems.
