Jeffrey Helmreich, MA Biography

Title:
Writer
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“The solution is: a massive grass roots network of people-to-people contact, between Palestinians and Israelis, similar to ‘Seeds of Peace’ but less politicized and more constructive, and with widespread programs in Israel and Palestine itself. These include joint schooling, joint businesses, interfaith clergy organizations, and constant dialogue. May sound a bit ‘pie in the sky,’ but note -- it’s the one thing that hasn’t even been tried yet!”
