Danny Tirza, PhD Biography

Title:
Former Head of the Rainbow Operation Administration of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF)
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“[Israel] does not want to rule the Palestinians. We are offering the solution of two states. If there is one state, the majority will be Arab and soon it will be a Jewish-free state… We didn’t annex the West Bank, we went to negotiations. You live in your areas and we live in ours, and have normal relations… We do not want to take [the Palestinians’] property. If we need [some land] for security reasons, we will offer compensation.”
