Barry Morrison, MA Biography

Title:
Former Regional Director for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“The op-ed ‘Aim to promote human rights of the Palestinians’ (Sunday) regarding the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against Israel conference at the University of Pennsylvania, is typical of the attempts of the global BDS campaign to malign and delegitimize Israel…

The BDS campaign has been unsuccessful in its calls for divestment from Israel. Its call for unilateral action against Israel is counterproductive to achieving peace in the region, and flies in the face of the decades-long U.S. commitment to bilateral negotiations as the means to negotiate a two-state solution…

Let’s support the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians, not destroy it.”
