Former Palestinian Authority prime minister Ahmed Qurei, who was one of
the architects of the Oslo Accords, Saturday called on Palestinians to
consider a one-state solution for Palestinians and Israelis instead of a
Voicing frustration and disappointment with the peace process, Qurei,
who played a major role in secret and public negotiations with Israel
over the past two decades, said that the "one-state solution, despite
the endless problems it embraces, is one of the solutions that we should
be contemplating through an internal dialogue."
He said that the Palestinians should be talking publicly about the
one-state solution, putting it on the table as an option and throwing in
the face of Israel as "burning embers."
Qurei's call for a one-state solution came in an article he published Saturday in the pan-Arab London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper.
