Ami Isseroff, DSc Biography

Title:
Director of the website MidEastWeb for Coexistence
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“I support Israel and Palestine. Self determination for the one people cannot be supported without self determination for the other, and a solution that does not allow self-determination for both is a plan for war and oppression, not peace. The solution will not be found in better maps or guarantees or international forces, but in the hearts of men. Without the will to peace, any issue is made into an insurmountable obstacle. With the will to peace, the solution to any problem becomes a shared responsibility and achievement.”
