The One State Reality (S.12, Ep.17) The One State Reality: What Is Israel/Palestine?: 9781501768392: Barnett, Michael, Brown, Nathan J., Lynch, Marc, Telhami, Shibley: BooksEditors Shibley Telhami of the University of Maryland, Michael Barnett of George Washington University, and Nathan Brown of George Washington University join Marc Lynch on this week’s podcast to discuss their new book, The One State Reality: What Is Israel/Palestine?. The book argues that a one state reality already predominates in the territories controlled by the state of Israel. The book shows that starting with the one state reality rather than hoping for a two state solution reshapes how we regard the conflict, what we consider acceptable and unacceptable solutions, and how we discuss difficult normative questions (Starts at 0:44).
