I’m pleased to announce that several of us here at Harvard have organized a conference about the one-state solution. Or rather, it’s a conference whose aim is to help us define what one-state actually means.

We will be hosting nineteen speakers on ten panels (we may consolidate some of the panels) to discuss what a few of the major issues around the one-state are. Equally, we’d like to identify some of the challenges that may impede its realization. Members of the community here provided helpful advice and feedback during the planning phase of the conference – and two of the on-campus centers are acting as co-sponsors.

I’m happy to say that as a student, I was treated with all the respect, consideration and good-will that any of my peers working on any other issue would have received.

I want to emphasize however that that does not mean that any member of this institution endorses our views or supports our agenda (defining one alternative to a two-state solution). Instead, it highlights the University’s commitment to open and free discussion.

Please see our conference website (onestateconference.org) for a full description of what we will be discussing on March 3 and 4. And register soon!

Awesome Ahmed! Hope it turns out to be productive and people come and participate.

Congrats to all involved! Don’t cease the campus to the hasbara idiots.

Whoa what an incredible speaker line up. Sure is looking like the one state solution is the only solution. Israel has basically wiped out the possibility of a two state solution based on the 67 border.

Ahmed is there any way to summarize the reasoning behind a push for a one state solution in a sentence or two?

Ahmed, will somebody be recording these exceptional speakers? I really wish I could fly in for this conference.

what an amazing lineup of speakers. incredible.
