Hillel Schenker, MA Biography

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

“The current round of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations is scheduled to end on April 29…

This may be one of the last opportunities to make progress toward a viable two-state solution, and we urge all of the parties concerned to seize this opportunity. The alternative idea of a one-state solution is not a realistic alternative, but rather a recipe for either an Israeli-dominated apartheid-like regime or violent chaos.”
