Charley Reese Biography

Title:
Former Syndicated Columnist
Position:
Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“Palestinians should give up the idea of a two-state solution. It is as plain as a hippopotamus at a tea party that the only kind of state the Israelis will give them, if at all, is a politically and economically unviable collection of tiny enclaves separated by Israeli territory.

Instead, Palestinians should demand a unified Palestine, with one-man, one-vote democratic government and equal rights for all…

The rallying cry for Palestinians should become one Palestine, equal rights for all and one man, one vote. They have lived under Israeli occupation for 40 years, and it is time for that to end.”

“One Man, One Vote,” AntiWar.com, May 12, 2007
