…some thoughts from Ian Chamberlain

What solution for a “just peace”?

What steps are practical and just?

Another issue which seems to polarize activists seeking a “just peace” to the Israel/Palestine conflict is what will a “just peace” look like? This often focuses on a discussion about one or two states, with advocates on both sides making claims about why their “solution” is more just. The honest answer is that no solution will make the history of suffering disappear, heal the scars or solve all the issues. Lars and Ian debate the issue of what is pragmatic given “facts on the ground” as well as considering the views of the international community, Palestinians and Israelis.
