Jeff Halper is an outspoken Israeli Jew who co-founded the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD). He has written for The Nation.
Halper recently offered a detailed plan for resolving Israel/Palestine issues, taking a truly Jewish perspective in an article entitled, “The ‘One Democratic State Campaign’ program for a multicultural democratic state in Palestine/Israel.” The article was published in Mondoweiss. Halper goes into greater detail in another article, “The Difficult Passage from a Two-State ‘Solution’ to Decolonisation in Palestine/Israel.”
ICAHD is a non-violent Israeli direct-action organization established in 1997 to end Israel’s Occupation over the Palestinians. A grassroots organization, ICAHD has focused on the “big political picture” even while engaging in protest, resistance and informational activities “on the ground.” It seeks– together with Palestinian, Israeli and international partners– to formulate and achieve a genuinely just political settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian “conflict,” one that revolves around the creation of a single democratic state over the entire country.
Halper joined Palestinian Awad Abdelfattah to write in support of a one-state solution in this article published in the Electronic Intifada. Abdelfattah is a political writer and the former general secretary of the Arab Israeli Balad political party. Read more about Abdelfattah in this interview with the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions.
Halper has written Decolonizing Israel, Liberating Palestine: Zionism, Settler Colonialism, and the Case for One Democratic State. The book is available on Amazon.com. British journalist Mark Seddon, media adviser in the Office of the President of the United Nations General Assembly, interviewed Halper about the book and Halper’s thoughts on Israel/Palestine.
