Avraham Infeld: So Passionately Jewish to See the Imperative of a Two-State Solution

Sep 09, 2007 Published under Mideast Negotiations, Religion

Avraham Infeld, the Chairman Emeritus of Hillel, is known as
a giant in Jewish circles. My friend, mentor and hero Rabbi Brian Lurie
(I’ll tell you about him another time) introduced me to Avraham earlier this summer. I was struck by his passion for Israel, and corollary passion for a Two-State-Solution, with the passion emanating from his enlightened recognition that this is the only way Jews will be able to have a peaceful homeland with Jewish values, and the only way Palestinians and Israelis will be able to achieve peace.

He pointed out that as a South African Jew, he fears for Israel and for the region.

He worries at the dying necessary intersection for the only possible solution to this conflict: a two-state solution:
Currently the majority of Palestinians want a two-state solution, but that majority is decreasing every day we see no progress towards it, even though there is no other alternative that will bring peace to the region.
Israeli Jews increasingly support the imperative of a two-state solution, but will they do so and act on it fast enough before it is too late and we are all doomed to eternal fighting?
