Even a child born of rape has a right to exist: Challenging the notion of a Jewish people by Shlomo Sand

Shlomo Sand is a Jewish proffesor at the Tel Aviv University. His book; The invention of the Jewish people, was on the Israeli best seller list for 19 weeks.

In this lecture he challenges the existence of a Jewish people and therefore the right of Israel to exist as a “Jewish” state which he also rejects as an undemocratic principle.

He pleads however for the acceptance of the state of Israel as a secular state and the development of first a secular Palestinian state after which both states can be united in a federation in order to merge into one state for both Israelis and Palestinians.

Well worth your time if you want to understand better what is causing the problems and how they can be solved.
