ONE STATE IN PALESTINE/ISRAEL CANNOT BRING EQUALITY IF IT IS A CAPITALIST STATE

by Ellen Isaacs

As we reflect on the latest brutality against protestors in Gaza and the struggle to end the outrageous Israeli occupation of Palestine and oppression of Israeli Palestinians, it is important to formulate a goal for what we would hope to attain. This goal does not have to be achievable in the near future or even near distant future, but it provides a framework that defines what immediate struggles are engaged in and whom is declared to be an ally or an enemy. In fact, it is unlikey that this conflict will be settled between Israelis and Palestinians in isolation, as the whole region will probably be engaged in larger conflict between Iran, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the US and Russia long before that happens. However, it is to be hoped that there would be, at some time, an entity that could be Palestine/Israel, or perhaps some larger regional entity, that would provide for equality, opportunity and freedom for all who live there. Then I know that organizing in the present must strive to be multiracial, multinational, and to be led by rank and file people, as opposed to economic moguls, politicians or religious leaders.
