Solution 196–213: United States of Palestine-Israel (edited by Joshua Simon), is an anthology of texts proposing a doable solution for the region. With contributors based in Ramallah and Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Beirut and Jerusalem, New-York and Bethlehem, Vienna and Berlin, Nazareth and Warsaw, the book offers eighteen solutions and ways to do them.
"Solution" is a tricky termespecially in relation to the ongoingnewspeak of the last two decades in Palestine-Israel. The idea is therefore to rethink the different antagonisms that structure our ways of resistance and compliance: to rethinkSemitismand 1948, rethink identity and territory, rethink resistance and memory, rethink democracy and state; rethink Zionism and decolonization, rethink refugee and property, rethink religion and solution.
