Palestinian state should not be imposed from outside- Rabbi Andrew Baker

A Palestinian state should grow out of negotiations with Israel, believes OSCE Representative on Combating Anti-Semitism Rabbi Andrew Baker.

­“A Palestinian state should come out of direct negotiations between the Palestinian authority and the state of Israel. I hope that happens at some point soon, but I think that is the way the state of Palestine should emerge, not by some recognition or decree from outside,” he said.

Rabbi Andrew Baker believes that ongoing tensions in the Middle East may trigger anti-Semitic events globally.

“At the very least, we can certainly demonstrate that conflicts in the Middle East may trigger anti-Semitic events elsewhere, and particularly in Europe, Western Europe, where you have growing Arab and Muslim communities,” he said.
