Ido Aharoni, MA Biography

Counsel General of Israel in New York
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"

“The future that we want for all our children can only be achieved if the Palestinian people recognize the harm that accepting Hamas will continue to have on attaining a peaceful two-state solution. Israel is ready to live side-by-side in peace with its Palestinian neighbors, but Palestinians must change the way they view Hamas, and reject its core values and objectives.”
