The prospects for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are receding. Yet as Palestinian rights activist Yousef Munayyer argues, decades of discussion and conflict about how to “fairly” divide Palestine into two independent states have missed the point: Arabs and Jews have always jointly occupied the territory under dispute, and the only viable way forward is to grant both groups equal citizenship rights in a single state. His eloquently crafted argument in favor of a one-state solution makes for a stimulating read, whether you are an expert on the conflict or a casual reader.
