There should be one state guaranteeing freedom and equality for Muslims, jews, Christians, Samaritans, Druse, Arabs, Sephardim, Falasha, Mirazhim, Ashkenzim and everyone else. No more apartheid. No symbols on the flag corresponding to any ethnic or religious community.

Yes, Israel, dismantle all of your settlements in the West Bank. That land does not belong to you no matter how much you tried to steal.

Recognize Israel as a sovereign nation.
Then Israel needs to dismantle the West Bank settlements.
