Toward a Two State Reality – An End to the Occupation First

With the stagnation of the Madrid-Oslo negotiations alongside Israel’s deepening occupation, expansion of settlements and expropriation of West Bank land, Israelis, Palestinians, and members of the international community are increasingly skeptical about the viability of a two-state solution. Groups on the Israeli center-left have begun to propose alternative solutions, such as a confederation, a bi-national state, or a state of all its citizens. From the Israeli right there are more calls for a partial or complete annexation of the West Bank, without granting rights to Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza.

With this project Ofek seeks to promote our vision of equality and self-determination for all people between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, by analyzing both sides’ interests and the power dynamics between them, as well as formulating the necessary steps needed to advance a two-state reality in the political and public sphere.
