If it is true that the two-state solution is dead, and that the one-state solution is even harder to achieve, then where does that leave us? What is, or should be, the agenda for the foreseeable future for those who are concerned with the Israeli-Palestinian issue?

Zionism and Palestinian Nationalism have been at loggerheads for over a century. Some thought the two-state solution would resolve the situtation. Jonathan explains that the two-state solution is no longer viable. He suggests that any solution be predicated on the basic existential needs of the two parties, needs he lays out in exceptional detail. He formulates a way forward for a 1-state solution that challenges both Zionism and Palestinian Nationalism. This book invites readers to begin a new conversation based on reality: two peoples will need to live together in some sort of unified state. It is balanced and accessible to neophytes and to experts alike.
