Stephen Hoffman Biography

Title:
Former Campaigns and Public Affairs Officer at the Zionist Federation
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“Everyone knows what the peace process would involve, so it is not some far off dream, it just requires courageous leaders. Sacrifices need to be made by both sides, for Israel it would abandoning most of the West Bank and coming to some creative solution over Jerusalem, for the Palestinians they will need to renounce claims to the whole of Israel, reject violence and realize that the return of the Palestinian refugees is a non-starter. Generous peace offers have been offered before by both Barak and Olmert and the Palestinian leaders rejected it. Let’s hope in the near future it will be third time lucky.”
