Argument: Two-state solution gives Palestinians unequal rights

Issue Report: Two-state solution to Israeli-Palestinian conflict


“The One State Declaration”. Issued by participants in the July 2007 Madrid meeting. November 29, 2007: “A two-state solution is] predicated on the unjust premise that peace can be achieved by granting limited national rights to Palestinians living in the areas occupied in 1967, while denying the rights of Palestinians inside the 1948 borders and in the Diaspora. Thus, the two-state solution condemns Palestinian citizens of Israel to permanent second-class status within their homeland, in a racist state that denies their rights by enacting laws that privilege Jews constitutionally, legally, politically, socially and culturally. Moreover, the two-state solution denies Palestinian refugees their internationally recognized right of return.”
