Israel-Palestine: A Confederal Approach (Supplement)
In response to my post, below, Dahlia Scheindlin has pointed out that I neglected to mention "Two States, One Homeland," a grass roots organization in Israel that is working on this approach. See the video, above, taken at their initial public conference a year ago.
Here is The Economist coverage of the conference. And here is coverage by the New Israel Fund.
Michael Zank, professor of religious studies at Boston University, met with Israeli journalist Meron Rapoport and Fatah political council member Awni al-Mashni, who are leaders in this movement this January, and he writes at TTN blog on March 22, 2016. Interestingly, Zank says that Two States, One Home has decided not to accept foreign funding.
So far, their effort is not endorsed by any political party in Israel or Palestine.
