Lamis Andoni Biography

Title:
Independent Journalist
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 fact that there is an international consensus – conceptually at least – that the establishment of a ‘Palestinian state’ is a prerequisite for peace between the Arab world and Israel is in itself testimony to the success of the Palestinian struggle. Israel’s failure to crush the Palestinian resistance by sheer and brutal force has compelled both Labor and even right-wing Likud to accept the futility of continuing to deny the Palestinian political identity.”
