To the Editor:

A good way to help our Christian and Muslim brothers and sisters in Gaza deal with their decades-long brutalization by the Israeli Jewish defense forces is to contact the San Francisco-based organization, Jewish Voice for Peace.

The JVP offers common-sense, 21st-century solutions to a needless conflict.

One example is a one-state solution in which all parties live together, since Israeli Jewish colonization of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza now prevents a viable two-state solution, as discussed by Mideast expert Rita Hauser recently at Kent Memorial Library, and by Mazin Qumsiyeh at the Gunn Memorial Library in Washington a number of years ago.

In his book, "Sharing the Land of Canaan," Dr. Qumsiyeh leads us through the realities of a one-state solution modeled after America or Switzerland, or more recently South Africa.

Dr. Qumsiyeh is a Palestinian Christian American who taught at Yale, and now lives in the occupied West Bank.
