Opinion: Water for all: The case for a one-state solution

Ramzy El Houry, author of this article, argues for Palestinian negotiators to stop pushing for a two-state solution and start looking into a one-state solution with Israel. He uses water resources as the main example to prove the ‘impossibility’ of the two-state solution: ” It is on this basis – the basis that Israel cannot accept a sovereign Palestinian state rightfully in control of its water resources – that I argue the need for a paradigm shift in mainstream Palestinian discourse from a two-state solution to a one-state solution.” He describes the Israeli policies towards water management in the West Bank as a major obstacle to peace in the form of a two-state solution and says the one-state solution is the only ‘practical’ solution.
