Petition : Call for the UK government to formally recognise the State of Palestine
I will not sign.
Sadly, there is no Palestinian state to recognize, within the 1967 or any other borders. These petitions achieve nothing and merely serve to delay the long-overdue death of the so-called ”two-state solution”, the illusion of which has guaranteed Israel’s survival as a Jewish racist state for decades.
Crucially, such token ‘recognition’ accepts Israel’s survival in its current racist form, and even aims to impose arrangements that prevent Israel’s collapse.
Well-meaning liberals and progressives, inside Israel and outside, who advocate a ”Two-State” solution are choosing to ignore an alternative, based on the principle of equality for all, on the separation of state from religion, and on an end to discrimination and racial apartheid — a One-State Solution : Liberated Palestine !
