Description: Beyond the Two-State Solution is a short introduction to the ongoing crisis in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Zionism and Palestinian Nationalism have been at loggerheads for over a century. 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.

Kuttab’s ‘No Brainers’

Don’t let the idea of a two-state solution act an alibi or excuse for avoiding concrete actions now:

· Lift the Gaza siege now

· Stop sending children to military courts

· Stop collective punishment

· Stop administrative detentions (detaining without charges or trial)

· Stop destroying homes

· Let Palestinians build in Area C

· Open up West Bank roads to all


Rabbi Suskin’s suggestions:

Don’t use not knowing the outcome as an excuse for not acting now.
