Netanyahu reportedly wants to negotiate pre-1967 borders with Palestine

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly wants to negotiate pre-1967 borders with the Palestinian authority in an attempt to head off a Palestinian bid for statehood at the United Nations next month.

This announcement comes after a weekend of social unrest in Israel, with 15,000 people taking to the streets  to demand "social justice" in one of the biggest demonstrations in the country's history.

James Rubin, former U.S. assistant Secretary of State, discusses both of these occurrences with Ali Velshi today on American Morning, commenting on whether or not Netanyahu's reported remarks are a breakthrough in the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
