Israel didn't step back from the deal brokered by Clinton, Arafat did. No, the deal wasn't based strictly on the '67 borders. It included some of the settlements in Israeli territory as well. Like I said before though, it was the high water mark for Israeli concessions and I doubt they'll get back to that point anytime soon.
