New Jersey Solidarity Activists for the Liberation of Palestine (NJSALP) Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“[O]nly the return of all Palestinian refugees to their original homes and lands and the liberation of all of historic Palestine from the control of an illegitimate apartheid colonial settler state [Israel], founded upon the dispossession and oppression of Palestine’s indigenous Arab people, can ensure [Palestinian liberation] in reality.”
