It’s not enough to criticise, we must offer solutions.
Speaking at the UN Forum on the Question of Palestine, Co-chair of the GI Yossi Beilin said that we must find a way to prevent annexation, or at the very least, defer it.
“What is needed now is a deal, and not the Deal of the Century but a way to resume negotiations between the two sides.” Beilin suggests one year of negotiations, with no preconditions and no unilateral steps taken by either party, underpinned by the Arab Peace Initiative or other previous peace proposals.
The bottom line: we must avert this catastrophe. Creative solutions that satisfy the minimum demands of all parties could provide the exit strategy.
