David Hartman, PhD Biography

Professor Emeritus at Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"

“A lasting peace is not possible unless each party accepts the right of the other to exist… peace will depend on the clear separation of the hostile parties into sovereign states with mutually acceptable permanent borders.”

“Essentials for a Lasting Peace,” Peace in the Promised Land: A Realist Scenario, 2005
