From Rojova to Ramallah: The Trappings of Statehood

In this op-ed in the Jerusalem Post, which I wrote together with my father Bob Feferman, we offer a new paradigm for the Palestinian challenge.

Only then, will Israelis feel confident that a Palestinian state would not crumble into chaos and terror on their borders.

For the article, see here. The article was also shared on Real Clear World.
