Jewish Federations of North America Biography

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

“The goal of the Road Map can be achieved. The positions of the parties are already clear, and the possible areas of compromise have been discussed in past negotiations. If the violence stops, the people of Israel will take the risks necessary to allow the Palestinians to have an independent state. And if the Arab states are willing to normalize relations with Israel, the dream of a comprehensive peace can be realized.”
