Moving Beyond the One-State/Two-State Debate

October 2015
Tikkun;Fall2015, Vol. 30 Issue 4, p31
The author talks about the Joint List Arab-Jewish formation as a potential political tool following the failure of the one-state/two-state debate in Israel/Palestine. He claims that the Israeli government under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ruled out a two-state solution and has no intention of affirming equal citizenship of the Arab inhabitants within the Israeli control system. He also explains why the nonviolent push for cultural boycotts could have counterproductive effects.
