Walid Khalidi, MLit Biography

Title:
General Secretary of the Institute for Palestine Studies (IPS)
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“A Palestinian state in the occupied territories within the 1967 frontiers in peaceful coexistence alongside Israel is the only conceptual candidate for a historical compromise of this century-old conflict. Without it the conflict will remain an open-ended one.”

“Toward Peace in the Holy Land,” Foreign Affairs, Spring 1988
