Israel will not be asked in the future to withdraw to the 1949 cease-fire lines (the Green Line) on the West Bank, according to a letter U.S.
President George Bush is to present to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in Washington this week.
According to the letter, the determination of borders in a final status accord will take into consideration "demographic realities" on the ground.

Israel in return. Apparently, the favor will be returned in full. The U.S. is prepared to recognize Israel's right to all of the land it currently
occupies in the West Bank, and will support the planned path of the separation fence. The separation fence could end up becoming the new border in the
U.S. backed "Road Map" for peace.
