Founding Director of Shurat HaDin Israeli Law Center
Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"She [Darshan-Leitner] does not live on an illegal settlement and says she is 'religious—Orthodox, but not ultra-Orthodox.' Even so, she admits her views are fairly hard-line. She is convinced that there will never be a two-state solution in her country. 'I don't think we can live together,' she says bluntly."
