While the conflict between Arabs and Jews over Palestine has been
at the center of much historical and political discussion,
philosophical treatments of the moral questions it raises are rare.
When does a group of people have a right to govern a certain
territory, and how are competing claims to be adjudicated? Under
what conditions are people entitled to political
self-determination? What rights accrue to those who have been the
victims of territorial aggression? Can recourse to terrorism ever
be legitimate? This book addresses these questions in relation to
the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The authors conclude that neither
Palestinians nor Israelis, as ethnically or culturally defined,
have rights to self-determination; that refugees do have a right to
return to homes and land from which they were driven; that
terrorism can sometimes be justified; and that one state for both
Arabs and Jews is the only moral solution to the conflict.
