Richard Sudan Biography

Title:
Freelance writer for the Independent and RT.com
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“Palestinians have yet to gain full recognition of statehood in the eyes of the very same international quartet that began this tragedy, partitioned away their land, and which continues to stand by while Palestinian homes are bulldozed to make way for settlers-the same international community that continues to stay silent and remain complicit while the status quo remains-and worsens.

International law calls for the withdrawal of Israel from occupied Palestinian territories, not the expansion of existing settlements and the commandeering of Palestinian homes and land…

Palestinians are fighting for recognition as human beings, nevermind their quest for statehood.”

“Palestine’s Right to Exist,” Independent, Mar. 26, 2012
