International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) Biography

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

“Israel must demand as a fundamental condition to the establishment of a Palestinian state that any agreement state specifically that the signing thereof signifies the end of the conflict between the Jewish not Israeli nation and the Palestinians by partitioning the land of Israel into two national states: one for the Palestinians and one for the Jews.

From the date of that signing, either ethnic group would be permitted to reside as a minority in the other state, but would not be entitled to demand a change in the national character of the state where he or she lives.

While not ruling out future Palestinian-Israeli hostilities, these clauses would at least serve as a ratification of Israel’s right to exist as the state of the Jewish nation in the eyes of the rest of the world.”
