As many of you know, we are actively promoting our co-founder Jonathan Kuttab’s timely and important short book, Beyond The Two-State Solution.
When we started, Jonathan told us he would welcome conversations with people who agree with his proposals and those who don't. His first choice was to be in conversation with Peter Beinart.
We are thrilled that the discussion has just taken place on the Foundation for Middle East Peace's impressive podcast. See more below.

Occupied Thoughts: Beyond the Two State Solution with Jonathan Kuttab & Peter Beinart
In this episode of “Occupied Thoughts,” host Peter Beinart is joined by Palestinian human rights lawyer Jonathan Kuttab, who recently published the book “Beyond the Two State Solution” (available at no cost via the Nonviolence International website). Kuttab argues that a Palestinian state with no sovereignty or substance cannot deliver freedom or independence and it is time to look beyond the “false mirage of the Two State Solution.” He lays out in detail how a single, shared Palestinian and Jewish state would be structured – from roles in the military to language learning in schools – and how it answers the urgent needs for justice, equality, and security.
Peter Beinart is a Non-Resident Fellow at the Foundation for Middle East Peace. He is also a Professor of Journalism and Political Science at the City University of New York, a Contributing opinion writer at the New York Times, and Editor-at-Large at Jewish Currents, and a CNN Political Commentator. He tweets at @PeterBeinart.
