Editor's Note:

There are more and more Israelis and Palestinians agreeing 
that the only solution is for both peoples to live in a 
country that is blind to whether you are Christian, Jew or 
Muslim. Sounds like a great idea to me. 

There is a conference scheduled in London to discuss this...

                 Video Clip Of The Week

     Australian Aborigines Perform Zorba The Greek

The dance is performed by Aborigine dancers wearing just 
loin cloths and ceremonial body paint. This version is a 
speeded up almost clubby version of the original song and 
is a joy to watch. This is hugely popular in Australia and 
very amusing!

Leading Palestinian and Israeli scholars and activists 
will be among the speakers at an unprecedented conference 
to explore a one-state solution, at the School of Oriental 
and African Studies (SOAS) in London on 17-18 November. 

Organized by the London One State Group and the SOAS 
Palestine Society, the conference, "Challenging the 
Boundaries: A Single State in Israel/Palestine," will 
explore new models for a just peace including bi-
nationalism, secular democracy, a 'state of all its 
citizens' and federalism. 

The London conference comes as prominent politicians 
including US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and UK 
Foreign Secretary David Milliband have recently warned 
that the window for implementing a two-state solution is 
fast closing. Israel has continued to block the establish-
ment of a Palestinian state by accelerating its coloniz-
ation of the occupied West Bank and tightening its starv-
ation siege of the occupied Gaza Strip, even as Rice makes 
last ditch efforts to implement a partition. 

"Unquestioned support for the two-state vision" among 
international elites "remains firm despite the disastrous 
failure of the peace process," a statement from the London 
One State Group notes, thus necessitating efforts "to 
broaden the discourse regarding the Israel-Palestine 
conflict towards consideration of a One State vision as a 
desirable and achievable alternative." The statement adds 
that the "birth of the non-racial democracy in South Africa 
and the implementation of the power sharing arrangement 
in Northern Ireland have strengthened the belief that 
partition is not the inevitable, nor necessarily the most 
desirable resolution to the conflict." 

Over the past several years the failure of the two-state 
approach has led to a resurgence of interest in a one-state 
solution and the London conference brings together many 
who have written or spoken in favor of it.

Conference organizers cite as one of their inspirations 
the late Palestinian scholar Edward Said, who wrote in 
1999, "The beginning is to develop something entirely 
missing from both Israeli and Palestinian realities today: 
the idea and practice of citizenship, not of ethnic or 
racial community, as the main vehicle of coexistence."
