Contiguous Palestine

The video posted recently on this site referencing Obama's "contiguous" Palestinian state speech seems to a bit off-base.  It did push me to do a bit of google searching to figure out what he actually said and what everyone else said in response but I ended up finding this news story where Netanhayu also calls for a "contiguous" state (which incidently does not include cutting Israel in half).

Given the fact that Netanyahu was comfortable using this language in April of this year, I don't think conservative websites should continue to assume that Obama meant the statement to mean cutting Israel in half.
