Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"First: We must immediately move for the de facto suspension of Israel throughout the entirely of the United Nations system... Second: Any further negotiation with Israel must be conducted on the basis of Resolution 181 (II) [1947 Partition Plan] and the borders it specifies; Resolution 194 (III) [Right of Return]... Third: We must abandon the fiction and the fraud that the United States government is an 'honest broker' in the Middle East... Fourth: We must move to have the U.N. General Assembly adopt comprehensive economic, diplomatic, and travel sanctions against Israel... Fifth: The Provisional Government of the State of Palestine must sue Israel before the Internatioanl Court of Justice in the Hague for inflicting acts of genocide against the Palestinian People... Sixth: We must pressure the Member States of the U.N. General Assembly to found an International Criminal Tribunal for Palestine (ICTP) in order to prosecute Israeli war criminals... Seventh: Concerned citizens and governments all over the world must organize a comprehensive campaign of economic disinvestment and divestment from Israel..."
