Louay Fatoohi, PhD Biography

Editorial Director of Packt Publishing
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"

“I do not believe that there can be a one-state solution. There must be two. But the focus must not be on the numbers, but on what they represent. Giving the millions of Palestinians a small land to turn into a country cramming themselves in to live at the mercy of their powerful neighbor is not particularly just or fair.”
