Most close observers of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, including some Israeli Jews and the Green Party of the US, acknowledge the death of the “two state solution” and reality of the alternative, “one state solution,” whereby Israelis and Palestinians would live together as equal citizens before the law in the land between the Mediterranean and River Jordan. Yet, US Republican and Democratic presidential candidates of 2016 continue to support the chimera of the two-state “non-solution” in their campaigns. Panelists will briefly discuss the unsustainability of the latter and the conditions including apartheid practices in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) as well as adherence to international law that make the case for One Democratic State (ODS). The goals of this panel are to educate forum participants about ODS and stimulate discussion for action.
