In Historic Palestine

  • The two-state solution to the conflict in Israel/Palestine has lost credibility because the conditions imposed by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territories have made it impossible. Yet the alternative – a unified democratic state such as was created in South Africa– contradicts how the world understands the basic formula for a peaceful resolution, which assumes that Israeli Jewish and Palestinians cannot live together peacefully and must be physically and politically divided into two independent states.
  • ODS mission is the creation of One Democratic State for all its citizens. We consider that division of Israel-Palestine into two states is not only impossible, but also fundamentally racist. We reject the Zionist claim that Jewish people can seize Palestine while depriving Palestinians of their rights to live freely and with equal rights in their ancestral homeland.
  • But we reject just as strongly the equally racist idea that Israeli Jews and Palestinians cannot share a non-ethnic democratic state in Palestine peacefully and find a new future together in a unified country. We believe and affirm that the only just, viable and stable solution to the conflict is a non-ethnic unified democratic state in all the territory now controlled by Israel.
