Fareed Zakaria, PhD Biography

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

“Bush has called for a solution that creates a Palestinian state that, along with Israel, has secure borders. Like every president before him, he has criticized the building and expansion of settlements. He has also asked that Israel ease up on checkpoints and searches that humiliate and enrage Palestinians. These goals are not simply in America’s best interest, they are also in Israel’s. Israel cannot survive as a democracy without peace with the Palestinians.”
