Egypt claims Netanyahu willing to go back to '49 armistice lines

After President Mubarak's meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu on Tuesday, the Egyptian government is claiming that Netanyahu is willing to return to the 1949 armistice lines that existed before the Six Day War.
The government of Egypt offered Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu rare praise following a meeting on Tuesday at Cairo’s Presidential Palace. After the Israeli premier met with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and other senior Egyptian officials, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit praised Netanyahu, claiming that Israel is prepared to withdraw to its 1967 borders.
I guess it would be an offense to Gheit's honor to admit that he didn't manage to talk Netanyahu into anything.

Yossi Beilin has said much the same thing and his earlier predictions have come true. Are new unilateral Israeli concessions going to be on the table soon? If Egypt's Ahmed Aboul Gheit is right, we'll find out soon enough.

the plan is, keeping the big towns and Jerusalem and ceding 1949 Israeli territory

Territorial swaps would mean annexing the Jordan Valley and giving up the Little Triangle. That's a territorial exchange Israel can live with. Exchange Arabs for Jews.
