GTI- In an in-depth Real Thinkers Institute RTI) interview with Miko Peled. pro-Palestinian activists and thinkers put forward the idea of "one solution for Palestine, Aug 5, 2023.
According to Miko Peled, until now the Palestinian people have not received 3 main rights:
In 1974 the General Assembly reaffirmed the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people to self-determination, national independence, sovereignty, and to return. The right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homeland, the right to fight, including with weapons, the right to decide to create their own state. The two-state solution is not a solution, the only solution is one state for a democratic Palestinian nation.
According to Miko, the two-state solution is a myth. If there were, since Israel was founded in 1947, of course the UN and the USA would have created a Palestinian state. Israel, USA, NATO and the European Union have become Israel as a supporting country for western interests. The system implemented is apartheid like the Nazis and the former South African regime.
Miko told RTI that the only way to establish a Palestinian state is to abolish the apartheid system implemented by Israel. This can be done only if the entire world civil society supports it. My family and I were part of the founding of the state of Israel, my father and grandfather helped establish the state of Israel. Meanwhile, after knowing the real problem, I tried to realize a Palestinian state by destroying the Israeli apartheid system. The separation wall, racism, illegal settlements are proof that Israel is practicing an apartheid system.
