Adam Sabra, PhD Biography

Title:
Professor of Pre-Modern Middle Eastern History, University of Georgia
Position:
Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“What is needed is a movement of Arab and Hebrew workers that is dedicated not only to formal equality, but also to tearing down the borders between one another, and between Palestine and its neighbors… Any claim by the current members of the Jewish caste to nationhood, and thus to self-determination, must be rejected. Palestinians, whether they are Arabic or Hebrew speakers, are members of one, indivisible nation. All attempts to partition or repartition the country and the nation in the name of ‘two peoples’ must be rejected as mere modifications in the terms of an apartheid system”

“The Jewish Caste in Palestine,” Race Traitor, Winter 1995
