Senior Fatah officials call for single democratic state, not two-state solution – New initiative would allow Palestinian refugees the right of return to ‘a state of all its citizens.’


Approximately 22 senior members of Fatah have signed a document calling to resuscitate the Palestinian strategy for a one-state solution, according to a report by Amira Hass in Haaretz [Hebrew].

According to Hass, the document was the product of two years of work (including meetings with Jewish Israelis), and was purposefully revealed on Wednesday – the 65th anniversary of the Nakba.

The document states that Israeli policies have made the two-state solution “unrealistic,” and that the most desirable outcome left for the Palestinian people, which would allow for the right of return is a “democratic state for all its citizens, based on a democratic constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and would ensure freedom and equal rights regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, color, language, nationality, political ideology, origin or birthplace.”
