Indyk lays out plan for two-state solution

Former US envoy and peace negotiator Martin Indyk lays out a pathway to an Israeli-Palestinian deal for the J Street conference audience.

“Mutually agreed swaps could accommodate 75-85 percent of the settlers where they live today. Withdrawal to secure and recognized borders will leave Israelis more secure than they are today,” he says.

In a final agreement, “Palestinians will have the right of return to their state of Palestine, but will not have right of return to the state of Israel.”

Such an agreement “will require mutual recognition of “Israel as the homeland for the Jewish people and Palestine as the homeland for the Palestinian people,” continues Indyk.

“The only alternative to the two-state solution is continued conflict.”
