Global Dialogue;Summer2002, Vol. 4 Issue 3, p1
The article focuses on the binational state framework as a way of reunifying the Palestinian people and ending the conflict between Israel and Palestine. It cites the separation of interests of different sections of the Palestinian people following the agreements signed with Israel by the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) and Palestinian Authority (PA). The Israeli Palestinians challenge Israel to become a state of all its citizens, while Gaza and West Bank Palestinians seemed to be preparing for an independent Palestinian state. It stresses that the rights of all Palestinians could be restored and Palestinian refugees could be repatriated only within a binational state. It adds that Israeli Palestinians and Israeli Jews could become equal citizens only within a binational state.
