Adam Horowitz, MA Biography

Coeditor of
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"

“Adam Horowitz, the co-editor of this site, has done a lot of speaking on Israel/Palestine and is regularly asked, “But Mr. Horowitz, tell us what you think of the two-state solution!?”… What’s his answer?…

There is a short answer and a longer answer to this question. The short answer is that I don’t take a position on one state or two states. In the end I’m not invested in one end product, but in ending the conflict…

I have heard compelling arguments for the need for one democratic state in Israel/Palestine and for separate states called Israel and Palestine. In the end it is up to people living on the ground to find a solution that works for them…

The longer answer gets to the real reason I think people tend to ask this question, especially if they’re confrontational: they are asking if I support a Jewish state. The simple answer is no… it is impossible for there to be equality in Israel/Palestine while there is a state that offers special and exclusive rights to Jews over other people.”
