In “Palestine’s Horizon: Toward a Just Peace”, Richard Falk emphasizes the present need “to take stock, and reformulate a vision and strategy to guide the Palestinian struggle”. The book is an invaluable contribution precisely because it goes so far in doing just that.
There is a strong tendency among Palestinian supporters to equate the two-state solution with the goal of the US-led so-called “peace process”. This is a fundamental error with important strategic consequences in terms of achieving an end to Israel’s occupation regime.
Contrary to the popular Zionist myth upon which the entire so-called “peace process” was premised, UN Security Council Resolution 242 requires Israel to fully and immediately withdraw its armed forces from occupied Palestine.
