- Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
“The only acceptable border for Palestinians, after they already gave up 78 percent of historic Palestine, is the pre-1967 border. This should be the trade-off deal with the original demand for return to a whole Palestine.”
“The ICJ ruling and Israel’s fence,” New York Times, July 10, 2004
- Theoretical Expertise Ranking:
Individuals with PhDs or equivalent advanced degrees in fields relevant to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Also top-level government officials (such as foreign leaders, US presidents, Founding Fathers, Supreme Court Justices, members of legislative bodies, cabinet members, military leaders, etc.) with positions relevant to Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
- Involvement and Affiliations:
- “The original foci of my research and theoretical, as well intellectual, interests were mainly on the impact of the Jewish-Arab (and Israeli-Palestinian) conflict on the Israeli society, and later on the development of the Palestinian collective consciousness and emerging nationalism.”
