Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"Israel repeatedly has been ordered by the United Nations to withdraw from the territories. An endless stream of Security Council resolutions since 1967 has identified Israel's illegal occupation as the primary source of conflict, and yet the United States has stood alone with Israel each time in blocking the implementation of any solution based on international stipulations to which both Israel and the United States are a party."
"Let Americans Learn Palestinian Side of the Story," The Houston Chronicle, Aug. 14, 2001
Experts Members of Congress, Ambassadors, Consul Generals, heads of government, heads of major government organizations, members of legislative bodies, and PhD's with significant involvement in, or related to, the Palestinian - Israeli conflict. [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
