A self-described “secular Jew,” documentary filmmaker Stefan Moore wrote about the troubled history of creating the Jewish state for Consortium News. He argues for a shift from fighting for a two-state solution toward a “democratic secular state accommodating both Palestinians and Israelis.”

He says, “Not only did Palestinians have no say in the creation of a Jewish state on their homeland, but just at the time when other developing countries around the world were finally breaking free from the yoke of colonial rule, Palestinians, like Native Americans and Australia’s First Nations people before them, became the victims of European settler colonialism — this time endorsed by a U.N. resolution that neither the Palestinians nor any of the Arab states agreed to or voted for.”

After detailing the history of the 1948 Nakba, he closes his article with a plea that instead of creating war, Israel should consider “a new secular democratic state for both Jews and Palestinians will evolve from the struggle.”
