Jacob Tovy, PhD Biography

Research Fellow at Haifa University
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"

“The Palestinians still remain conflicted about a two-state solution. The problem is not that such a solution has sworn opponents among rejectionist groups. The problem is that the mainstream leadership, despite its acceptance of a two-state solution, has yet to internalize its meaning: the explicit relinquishing of the ‘right of return’ to Israel. Until that happens, any negotiation on final status is destined to end where the last one did, in failure.”
