A Fallacious Argument for a Binational State

By Leonard Fein

Boston Review, 2001

Leonard Fein discusses the endorsement of a binational solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Crisis by Palestinian activist Lama Abu-Odeh. Abu-Odeh makes a fallacious argument, sadly mirroring the traps that many Israeli's have fallen into over the years, that the suspicions of one side alone are valid and that one side alone must have its needs addressed. The truth is that both sides bare responsibility, and only mutual admission of culpability can help all overcome their well-founded suspicions about one another. This draft version is archived as part of Leonard Fein's complete papers.

Topic: Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Anti-Zionism, Diaspora Relations, Israel-Diaspora Relations, Violence, Anti-Israel Sentiment, Palestinians, Israeli-Palestinian Relations, Discourse and Dialogue, Israel Advocacy, Hasbara
