פרופ' אסעד ג'אנם על מדינה אחת לשני עמים
Why You Should Support Our Organization
It is clear to most Israelis and Palestinians that the "two-state solution" can not solve any fundamental problems. If this non-solution was to be imposed by Washington, it could only lead quickly to war.
Obviously, a one-state solution is not an option either. In a unitary state, the two nations will be in open conflict to impose their identity on the other, and demography will be an explosive issue.
The existence - even at the embryonic stage - of a sustainable third alternative is a vital necessity. Without such a hope for their future, both sides will sink into despair. There is nothing more dangerous. An explosion of unprecedented violence may inflame the Middle East and the rest of the world.
We are the only ones who are working on such an alternative: the Federation of Israel and Palestine.
The current political parties, on both sides, are prisoners of their ideology, their past, and are unable to "think outside the box." And none gathers - like we do - Arabs and Jews , Israelis and Palestinians, from Israel and the Palestinian territories, working together to achieve a common goal.
We are forced to create a movement from scratch. This movement has to make a revolution in people's minds. It is a huge effort. We have no help from anyone else, only the one that you will grant us. We count on you.
