Well, plenty of people are, and understandably so. But my new piece for Foreign Policy covers some of the people who are not. And since this is a debate that’s only now beginning to emerge into the mainstream, I thought it would be useful to open a rolling post here documenting the pro and anti voices on this issue.
First, the article I refer to by Meron Benvenisti, is here. If there’s one article you’re going to read by a pro-one-state Israeli, this is it; and if there’s one article by a pro-one-state Palestinian you need to read, it better be the classical one, by Edward Said.
Second, there have been a number of books published on the matter in recent years:
- Ali Abunimah, “One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse”
- Ghada Karmi, “Married to Another Man“
- Avraham Burg, “The Holocaust Is Over; We Must Rise From its Ashes“.
Burg’s book is particularly important for understanding the Israeli perspective, as he hails from the kernel of the heart of centre-Zionist mainstream. You can read an unpublished interview of mine with Burg here .
[Note: The links are to Amazon, but if you actually want to buy books, I recommend Book Depository, who ship free worldwide]
Third, for Hebrew readers, there’s a good roster of articles for and against the one state here.
And finally, if you have recommendations and links to articles and/or books on this issue, please use the comment button below. The list above will be updated as we go.
