One Democratic State

Your One Stop Source For Real Reporting on Israel/Palestine,
 the Middle East, Pax Amerikana, and Related Matters

"In separateness lies the world's great misery,
in compassion lies the world's true strength."
- The Buddha

The One-State Vision and Foundational Principles of a Republic in Historic Palestine 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.
Every day since 2002, more or less, I have been offering a carefully selected collection of relevant writings
 from across the Web. It's just me, my
self and I publishing this website on a barebones budget.
