Matania Ginosar, DEnv Biography

Title:
Former Lechi [Stern Gang] member
Position:
Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“It is certainly better to live under the current situation than have a free Palestinian state…

If you know the map of the area, the elevations involved, the command over the total Israeli areas from the Palestinian side, you would not think about any suggestion of a free Palestine state.

The fact that the current Israeli government is supporting a 2 States shows that either they play the political game required now or they are ignorant of reality.”
