Brit Shalom and the bi-national solution
Already in the early 1920s Martin Buber started advocating a binational Jewish-Arab state stating that the Jewish people should proclaim "its desire to live in peace and brotherhood with the Arab people and to develop the common homeland into a republic in which both peoples will have the possibility of free development". Partners can then become empathic witnesses to each others wounds and early unmet needs. In 1952 he argued with Jung over the existence of God.

They had two children: a son Rafael Buber and a daughter Eva Strauss-Steinitz. In 1923 Buber wrote his famous essay on existence Ich und Du (later translated into English as I and Thou) and in 1925 he began translating the Hebrew Bible into the German language.
