Two seemingly unrelated items hit social media recently and both received a lot of attention. The first was an article by Peter Beinart that was published in the New York Times where Beinart claims he no longer believes in a Jewish State and calls for a binational state with equal rights in Palestine. The other, a video clip showing an Israeli

The Donald Trump I Know: Abbas’ UN Speech and the Breakdown of Palestinian Politics

The real danger of Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ is not the actual stipulations of the sinister plan, but the fact that Mahmoud Abbas will find a way to co-exist with them, writes Ramzy Baroud.

A precious moment has been squandered, as Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas, had the chance to right a historical wrong, by reinstating Palestinian national priorities at the United Nations Security Council on February 11, through a political discourse that is completely independent from Washington and its allies. For a long time,

At This Year’s J Street Conference, “Progressive” Pols Bow to Israel While Preaching Peace

Progressive politicians like Bernie Sanders should be credited for finally offering solutions to decades-old Israeli Human rights violations, but those solutions are often little more than talking points designed to placate their base and appease Israel.

My father, the late IDF general Matti Peled, called for a two-state solution in 1967, and as is stated in my book, The General’s Son, Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, he continued to campaign for this “solution”  until the day he died. It may have been a revolutionary idea then, especially coming from a retired IDF general. Some would even call

To Complete Her Profile in Courage, Rep. Ilhan Omar Should Embrace the One-State Solution

“Ilhan Omar went to Washington to shake up the status quo, not to parrot it. So why is she trying to prove her bona fides by adopting the discredited ‘two-state solution,’ which is a fancy way of saying racial segregation and apartheid?” — Palestinian journalist Ali Abunimah

WASHINGTON (Opinion) -- Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) -- Congress’ fiercest critic of the Zionist lobby and the apartheid policies of Israel -- has come out in support of a two-state solution, a weak and outdated proposition that has long been doomed. Increasingly, Palestinians are recognizing that a single secular democratic state with equal

The Palestinian People Are As Unified as Hamas and Fatah are Obsolete

There is a solid, grassroots leadership in Palestine. From Al-Jalil in the north to the Naqab in the south, and from the River Jordan to the Mediterranean Sea, Palestinians on the ground are well aware that the Hamas-Fatah politics have little to do with them.

Israel Palestine

JERUSALEM, PALESTINE – Among the myths that cover the reality in Palestine is the one that says Palestinians have no leadership, no unified message, and that the Hamas-Fatah divide represents the entire political reality in Palestine. There is also a myth that claims that the Palestinians of 1948, who carry Israeli citizenship, are somehow not
