David Project Biography

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

“Jewish national rights aside, a bi-national state or a ‘one state solution’ would simply not work to protect the Jews living there. The UN explicitly rejected the idea of a bi-national state in 1947 in favor of a two state solution… Sixty-six years later, the bi-national idea is no more feasible than it was in 1947.”

Mission:

“The David Project works primarily on college campuses to improve sentiment towards Israel. We look at the campus environment and ask: Who are the main stakeholders, who are the main opinion leaders, and how can we help students connect with them in the best way possible? We then train, educate, and guide students to make sure they know how to reach out to the right groups and talk about Israel in the most effective way.”
