Israel, Jordan, and Palestine: The Two-State Imperative by Asher Susser
Beyond the Two-State Solution: A Jewish Political Essay by Yehouda Shenhav, translated from the Hebrew by Dimi Reider and Efrat Weiss
In 1978 a young American citizen then going under the Anglicized name Ben Nitay argued that Palestinians do not have a right to a state, that they could instead get citizenship in Jordan or Israel, and that their goal is not to build a state but to destroy one. Today Benjamin Netanyahu argues against these very same views, which are still espoused by members of a strengthening, more conservative faction of his Likud party.
