Khaled Abu Toameh Biography

Title:
West Bank and Gaza correspondent for the Jerusalem Post
Position:
Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“A two-state system is great, but it’s not going to work. Gaza and West Bank are too far separated geographically, politically and culturally to work. And instead of focusing on the ideal promotion of love and harmony in the area, we need to look at reducing violence and friction, because the divisions are too wide.”

Lecture at the University of Texas at Austin, Feb. 25, 2007
