Ashrawi: The Call for a Binational State Is not a Political Program

July 2004
Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Jul/Aug2004, Vol. 23 Issue 6, p84
In a May 13 roundtable discussion at the Palestine Center in Washington D.C., Palestinian legislator, author and educator Hanan Ashrawi discussed the issues that have been at the heart of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict for generations, refugees and the right of return, and the shape of a final settlement. The discussion took place on the eve of the 56th anniversary of Al-Nakba, the day Palestinians commemorate their expulsion from Palestine and the loss of their country when the State of Israel was created in 1948. The refugee issue is not only a Palestinian and Israeli problem, Ashrawi stated, it is regional and, specifically, Arab.
