This proposal for solving the perennial Israeli-Palestinian dispute is developed in Martine Rothblatt’s book, Two Stars for Peace: The Case for Using U.S. Statehood to Achieve Lasting Peace in the Middle East (iUniverse, 2003), arguing that "the peoples of Israel and Palestine [should] petition the U.S. Congress to admit their lands as the fifty-first and fifty-second states of the United States."

dbo:abstract
  • This proposal for solving the perennial Israeli-Palestinian dispute is developed in Martine Rothblatt’s book, Two Stars for Peace: The Case for Using U.S. Statehood to Achieve Lasting Peace in the Middle East (iUniverse, 2003), arguing that "the peoples of Israel and Palestine [should] petition the U.S. Congress to admit their lands as the fifty-first and fifty-second states of the United States." The "Two Stars" concept has been dismissed as utopian. Two Stars for Peace counters this criticism by arguing that "the two state" solution in particular is a prescription for the continuation of never-ending conflict between Israelis justifiably concerned over secure borders and Palestinians with irredentist designs on the Jewish nation state. The "Two Stars" solution has also been dismissed as visionary. Yet Rothblatt continues to adhere to the proposition that the alternative "one state" as well as "two state" solutions are either undesirable or impractical, that this makes her vision inevitable though not imminent, and that "Two Stars" is the only practical and just ultimate solution for "two peoples with overlapping histories and conflicting claims of sovereignty."
