Ronald Bleier Biography

Title:
Editor and Writer of the Demographic, Environmental, and Security Issues Project website (DESIP)
Position:
Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“I had for some time come to the conclusion that the so-called Two-State Solution is merely a talking point, a way of putting off serious consideration of a peaceful means of going forward toward coexistence. The mirage of two states for two peoples helps to obscure what many Zionists see as the ‘demographic problem’ – the higher Palestinian birth rate threatening to outnumber Jewish people — as well as the issue of according equal human and national rights to Palestinians.”
