Israel & Palestine: a response to avaaz.org

 In reading about your various campaigns, I noted the following:  “Israeli and Palestinian Avaaz members, like other Avaaz members and the general public around the world, firmly support a peaceful, just, two-state solution for Israel and Palestine and respect for human rights on both sides.”

I’m sorry, but I remain unconvinced that such a “solution” will be peaceful or just.  Better to pursue a single state in which all Jews and Palestinians have equal rights, equal legal protections (am I being redundant?), and equal respect and opportunity.  If you wish to pursue that campaign, then I will wholeheartedly support it and you.  Until then, please remove me from your mailing list.
