Ramzy Baroud, MA Biography

Title:
Editor-in-Chief of the Palestine Chronicle
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 solution that can introduce the most basic threshold for justice is not possible considering the impossibility of the geography of the Israeli occupation, the huge buildup of illegal settlements dotting the West Bank and Jerusalem, the right of return for Palestinian refugees to their homes, and issues pertaining to water rights, etc. That ‘solution’ is a relic of a past historical period when Henry Kissinger launched his shuttle diplomacy in the 1970’s. It has no place in today’s world when the lives of Palestinians and Israelis are overlapping in too many ways for a clean break to be realized.”
