has called for the United States to recognize the State of Palestine.
Segal issued a statement saying:
“With US recognition, all of Western Europe would also follow. The Palestinian Authority would be dissolved, and the PLO would drop out of the picture. Very likely the State of Palestine would come to exercise sovereignty over Gaza, and Hamas, which is not part of the PLO, would recognize the legitimacy of the new State and compete for power within Palestinian democracy.”
Segal’s new book, “The Olive Branch From Palestine: The Palestinian Declaration of Independence and the Path Out of the Current Impasse” (foreword by Noam Chomsky) was published two months ago by U of Ca. Press.
Segal came to international attention in 1988 when his writings were the catalyst for the PLO’s decision to unilaterally proclaim a Palestinian state.
