Israeli prime minister says Israel will not return to "indefensible" 1967 borders for achieving peace with Palestinians.
Addressing a conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committtee (AIPAC) on Tuesday in Washington, Netanyahu said Israel cannot return to the "indefensible" 1967 borders - something that the US president Barack Obama had suggested a few days earlier.
His address was disrupted several times by protesters.
Netanyahu says Israel will only accept "undivided Jerusalem" as capital

Let Israel keep Jerusalem and Palestine can choose a few other places..
Easy does it?
He said "this conflict has raged for nearly a century because the Palestinians refuse to end it. They refuse to accept the Jewish state. This is what this conflict has always been about."
"Peace with Palestinians must leave Israel with security, therefore Israel cannot return to the indefensible 1967 lines," he said.
"Imagine keeping a young soldier locked in a dark dungeon for five years without a single visit of the Red Cross," Netanyahu said referring to Gilad Shalit, the Israeli soldier held captive by Hamas.
"I think the entire civilised community should join Israel, America and all of us in a simple demand: release Gilad Shalit," he said, describing the soldier's capture as an "outrageous crime".
