Bradley Burston Biography

Title:
Senior Editor at Haaretz.com
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“Polls have shown that most Israelis, as many as two out of three, want to see a two state solution. They want to see independent, internationally recognized states of Israel and Palestine coexisting side by side, and an end to occupation. I believe that the sides can come to agreement over the core issues, given some of the solutions proposed in the past. The crux of the current impasse, I think, has more to do with an even more difficult question of leadership, which I’ll be returning to and expanding on, in response to another of the questions.”
