Clarification on the Israel vs. Palestinian situation

I enjoy keeping up with world news.  However, I don't keep up with it enough to fully understand the background of what the media is talking about.  I saw the video last week of President Obama meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  I didn't understand what the debate was specifically about.  They disagree about borders, but why?  One thing that I could understand was the tension in the room.  Can you say awwwwkward...

I ran across an article today in the Washington Post by Charles Krauthammer that made me feel very much more informed about the situation.  I know I can't be the only one feeling like I'm in some bubble while the rest of the world debates, and since a little information goes a long way, I wanted to post this everywhere I could. 

Happy reading!  And happy understanding!

As an Arab (my dad is a Palestinian immigrant) married to a Jew (who converted after our marriage), the issue has always held interest for us! :)

We are doing our part for world peace. ;)
