Along vs aside? Aida Touma-Sliman, Arab Member of the Knesset

70 years ago, recognition of the Palestine partition plan was put to a vote at the United Nations, which it won.  This paved the way for a Jewish state alongside an Arab state, but over the following decades that casual use of the preposition “alongside” turned into a geopolitically-fraught proposition, the wisdom of which the Israeli leadership now openly contests. Will the time ever come for “alongside” to mean the coexistence of the two states, as was initially envisaged? Oksana is joined by Aida Touma-Sliman, Arab Member of the Knesset, to discuss this.
