Analyst's Revelation of Kerry's "Fraud" Attracts Notice

Mark Langfan's revelation of 1967 USJCoS "defensible" borders map gains attention on news sites, warns of Kerry's plans.
Arutz Sheva analyst Mark Langfan's uncovering of a 1967 US Joint Chiefs of Staff (USJCoS) memorandum last Friday has been picked up by several US conservative news websites, as the magnitude of US Secretary of State John Kerry's "fraudulent" Jordan Valley security arrangement plan becomes clear.
The memorandum reveals that Kerry's plans are a "military security fraud on Israel and the Jews," according to Langfan. He notes that the plan doesn't even pass 1967 military standards of Israel's "defensible" borders as determined by the USJCoS.
Langfan's revelation was picked up on Saturday by the US news site Breitbart, which linked to Arutz Sheva's article in reporting Kerry's most recent unsuccessful trip to Israel last week, in which Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas rejected all of his proposals, and formally refused to recognize Israel as the Jewish state.
The revelation was similarly referenced in a Monday article on online magazine American Thinker's website. That article began "Kerry is in the Mideast trying to impose a solution. Pro-Zionists sites are producing maps and trying to dissuade the powers that be from dividing the land, as if that were a real possibility."
In response, Langfan noted "I didn't 'produce' the map, I copied the actual map the Joint Chiefs of Staff included in their memorandum of what 'defensible' borders were. But it's nice American Thinker cited to the Arutz Sheva article."
The map in question can be seen below.
American Thinker's article concludes that instead of land, negotiations should focus on the Arabs living in Judea and Samaria, and figure out how to relocate them elsewhere, out of Israel.
Previously Langfan warned that Kerry's plans mirror the 1967 "Allon Plan," and constitute a "death-trap" for Israel.
