"We must see ourselves as political actors, and following the lead of our Palestinian partners we must formulate and pursue solutions that will provide justice, peace and the full range of human rights -- civil, political, social, economic and cultural -- guaranteed by international law."

ICAHD promotes a "rights-based approach." It's based on five fundamental principles, including:

(1) "A just peace and process leading up to it," according to international law principles.

(2) It must be inclusive for Arabs and Jews alike - one nation with equal rights for all its people.

(3) It must equitably resolve the refugee issue. Under international law, the right of return is inviolable. 

(4) "A just peace must address the security concerns of all in the region."

(5) "A just peace must be regional in scope." Otherwise it won't work.

ICAHD endorses a one-state solution, "while still promoting the eventual emergence of a regional economic confederation." Begin "with the idea that two peoples share the country." A common political space must be created. Doing it won't be easy.

For sure it won't happen unless both sides try. At issue is turning around past failures. Palestinian, Israeli, and international civil societies "will play a decisive role in achieving justice, equality, peace, and reconciliation"." There's no other way.
