The Secular Democratic One-State Solution for Israel

Questions and answers about Zionism, Israel, the Israeli-Palestinian (Palestine-Israel, Middle East) Conflict

 In French: Sionisme et l'Israel : Questions et réponses (FAQ)  

Why can't there be peace in a single democratic state for Arabs and Jews?

Every people has the right of self-determination - the right to develop their own culture, customs and language, and to defend themselves from foreign domination. If it is logical and just to support a state for the Palestinian Arabs, then certainly it is logical and just to support a state for the Jewish people, who do not have twenty two other states that speak their language and have similar customs.  Historically, the "one state" solution is not a peace settlement, but rather a vehicle for expelling the Jews from the country.  In 1948, the Arab countries offered a "Single State" solution.  Grand Mufti Hajj Amin El Husseini  made it clear that the first act of such a state would be to annihilate or expel the Jews of Palestine. This threat was repeated by Ahmed Shukhairy, then head of the PLO at the United Nations, in May of 1967, and adopted in the program of the Fateh and PLO in the early 1970s. No "peace" solution can be based on destroying a state and denying self-determination to its people.
