The One-State Vision and Foundational Principles of a Republic in Historic Palestine

...it is imperative to dissolve the Jewish state of Israel. Such a state, which has no basis other than a fascistic narrative constructed out of paranoia and mythology, has
 no legitimacy in our world. It embodies all of the characteristics that humanity has resoundingly rejected in the last century - colonialism, racism, ethnic cleansing,
 apartheid and genocide. The dehumanization and destruction of a people, along with the dispossession of their land and property, is utterly intolerable. The only feasible
alternative is its replacement by a pluralistic, democratic state that includes the Palestinians as equals. There is no other viable solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
~ Us vs Them: On the Meaning of Fascism, by Roger Tucker

These ‘Israelis’ will never debate any truth a Palestinian or other puts forth to them…. always deflect and distract. Why? Because they know,
 as they always have known and will forever know, they are living on stolen land and borrowed time.
