Israel and Palestine

“I wish to state right away my solidarity with all those, in this land, who advocate an end to violence, condemn the crimes of terrorism and of the military and police repression, and advocate the withdrawal of Israeli troops from the occupied territories as well as the recognition of the Palestinians’ right to choose their own representatives to negotiations, now more indispensable than ever. The Israeli State’s existence, it goes without saying, must henceforth be recognised by all”.
Derrida, Jerusalem, 1986
