The latest Journal of Palestine Studies (# 176) features as its free article, "The Two-State Model and Israeli Constitutionalism: Impact on the Palestinian Citizens of Israel" by Mazen Masri, a lecturer in law at the City Law School, City University London. Masri argues that the two-state solution would undermine the legal standing of Palestinian citizens of Israel (PCI) as it would reinforce the definition of Israel as a Jewish state.
