Another view on two-state proposals

IF ABRAHAM H. Foxman abhors the idea of one state for the Israeli Jewish and Palestinian peoples (“Israelis, Palestinians under one flag?,’’ Op-ed, Feb. 29), then fulminating against a one-state conference at Harvard is misplaced.

Instead, he should raise the alarm about Israeli settlement, infrastructure, education, and tourism policies that are erasing all memory of the 1967 borders from Israeli culture and creating a de facto single state between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River.

The Israeli government, not one or another Palestinian ideology, is implementing the one-state solution. Foxman should join those working for a two-state solution - the policy of George W. Bush, Barack Obama, former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
