Preview Clip

Beyond the Two State Solution is the new book from Yehouda Shenhav, a professor at Tel Aviv University; he explains his view of a one-state solution, where Israelis and Palestinians share a nation.Prof. Shenhav opens with comments on current issues like Israel’s threat to attack Iran, which he opposes, and its influence in our elections this year.  He studied at Stanford and lived in NYC for a while.   He is not afraid to offend the Netanyahu government, and Israelis of every political wing.  He explains that he thinks the 2-state concept is dead, and that using 1967 borders as a starting point for negotiations is unfair to the Palestinians.  He looks at the history of Israel since 1948, and is quite honest about the plight of the Palestinians.  He also accepts the illegal Israeli settlements, and argues that the only fair way to resolve the conflict is to share the land and resources equitably.
