About this product
- DescriptionA Palestinian state alongside a secure Israel is the sine qua n of a stable peace between Arabs and Israelis, and at this late date would realize a modicum of the Palestinians' moral and legal territorial rights (roughly equal to those of the Jews/Israelis), and a long-standing aspiration for self-determination. A defense of the two-state option, and a qualified defense of the Oslo Accords against Islamist and radical Jewish rejectionist critics is therefore offered. Besides satisfying Palestinian aspirations, Palestinian statehood would help open the way to a comprehensive peace between the Arabs and Israel, through a just, negotiated settlement of the Syrian/Lebanese-Israeli territorial disputes. A comprehensive peace, in turn, should stimulate ecomic and cultural cooperation between Israel and the Arab countries (the peace divided), lending it additional strength. Increased stability should also result from the hoped-for liberalization and democratization of the region's Arab regimes.
