What Comes Next: Strategy before solutions

Mouin Rabbani writes an entry for our series “What Comes Next?: A forum on the end of the two-state paradigm.” Rabbani says it is insufficient for advocates of a one state solution to simply argue that one state is right and just and better than the alternatives. Rather, they need to present a credible strategy for achieving what would amount to the unconditional surrender of the Israeli state. Rabbani says, “the question in 2013 is therefore not whether a one or two state outcome is more just or right or fair. Rather it is what strategy Palestinians should pursue to achieve their inalienable rights, first and foremost the right to national self-determination.”
