One State, Two States: A Review

The Jerusalem Post reviews Benny Morris’ new book about the history of the bi-national movement. His main thesis is that although the concept of two states in the Land of Israel has been endorsed by many Israelis and the international community, the Arabs have consistently objected to this solution. That was certainly true in 1948 when the Jews accepted the partition plan and the Arabs immediately attacked them. Morris quotes the leadership of the PLO, Fatah and Hamas to show that the Arabs are still unwilling to settle for a two-state solution. Morris proposes a solution of his own; the reader can judge for him/herself whether it is any better than any of the solutions currently on the table.
