Clearly back then they had different expectations as to how this whole thing could turn out for them, and I think it's fair to say that even the most pessimistic couldn't have foreseen the present situation. I'm sure many will argue that even the '67 proposed boarders are unfair for the Palestinians, and in the event that they were to be enforced, they would seek an even bigger cut. But even that prospect is surely more desirable and cannot be compared to the massacre we are whitnessing today.
