Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., MA Biography

Title:
President and CEO of The Center for Security Policy
Position:
Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“Abandon the Two-State Non-Solution: For over two decades, successive American administrations and governments of Israel have tested a very dubious proposition. They have pursued the idea of a Palestinian state and, to that end, made serial concessions – both territorial, financial and political – even though just negotiating such a state, let alone its realization, has imperiled Israel, not advanced regional peace.”
