One State London Group, "Challenging the Boundaries: A Single State in Palestine/Israel."

To Whom It May Concern:

We would like to draw your attention to an innovative approach to the resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Challenging the Boundaries: A Single State in Palestine/Israel will be explicitly addressing the fundamental causes of the conflict by examining an idea that is generating more widespread interest than ever -- a single state for all in the area.

The idea of a single state in Palestine/Israel has been around for decades. The idea is now gaining more currency, with the failure of previous political processes to address the conflict's underlying tensions. An alternative to the exclusivist ideologies that are bound to perpetuate suffering in the region is desperately needed -- and is on offer from disparate groups in Israel, Palestine and the rest of the world.

We are an informal group associated with the Palestinian Society of the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London), dedicated to promoting the idea of a single state as a feasible and achievable option to the status quo. Challenging the Boundaries will bring together academics and activists from Palestine and Israel to discuss the idea in public, for the first time in London.

The involvement of the international NGO community / European diplomatic community / International diplomatic community is a key to the success of open debate about a single state in Israel/Palestine. To that end, we would like to invite a representative from your office / group / organisation to attend the conference. We are confident that your presence and participation will contribute to the debate and advancement of the idea.

If you will be able to join us or you are willing to support us, please see details attached. We also ask that you help spread the word of this conference as widely as possible. We look forward to receiving you in London!

One-State Solution Plan Principles

Starting in 1948 from very first day of recreation of the State of Israel on the part of Israel territory, Arab countries waged several wars to eliminate Israel from her historic land. Israel won all wars and now Arab countries propose a peace agreement with Israel under conditions, which they intended to dictate. However, only Israel, who won all the wars and defeated Arab countries, has legal rights to formulate and dictate peace agreement terms and conditions, which, in general, shell include the following provisions:

1. Palestinian Arabs must compensate Jews for damages caused by Jews massacres conducted in Palestine before WWII under British administration supervision, for providing Hitler with idea of Final Solution and for taking part in implementing the idea.
2. Arab countries must compensate Israel for damages inflicted on Israel during wars launched by Arab countries.
3. Arab countries must compensate about 1 million Jews expelled from Arab countries between 1948 and 1953, where they lived for centuries, for violation of international law and stilling properties.
4. Arab countries must recognize “Article 24 of the 1964 PLO charter addressed to UN, which stipulates: Palestinian Arabs do not claim Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and Gaza their territories”.
5. Arab countries must comply with Geneva Convention, which recognizes Israel rights on Gaza, Judea and Samaria, historic Jewish land liberated by Israel in 1967 war from Jordan and Egypt occupation.
6. Arab countries must recognize Jerusalem as historic Israel capital.
7. Egypt and Jordan are obligated to relocate Palestinian Arabs (their former citizens) from Gaza (Egypt), Judea and Samaria (Jordan) inside their territories within 1 (negotiable) year term.
8. Arab countries have no right to develop or acquire WMD or weapon that can be used against Israel.

If any Arab country denies this peace terms and conditions, Israel has full legal rights for preemptive strike against this country using all available military power. All islamofascism organizations operating on Israel territory occupied by Palestinian Arabs, such as PLO&Fatah (created after WWII on the principles of Hitler’s ideology and with close ties to Nazi party), Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Al Agsa Brigade, must be totally, unconditionally and immediately exterminated. All other Palestinian Arabs must be expelled from Israel back to the countries of their origin.
