Joshua Teitelbaum, PhD Biography

Senior Research Fellow in the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"

“Those truly concerned with peace and stability should support self-determination for both peoples in two states, since in the Middle East a one-state solution would only bring death and destruction. Think Lebanon, Iraq, Somalia, and Afghanistan – not Switzerland.”

“Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People: From the San Remo Conference (1920) to the Netanyahu-Abbas Talks,” Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs,, Sep. 15, 2010
