A Land for All is a shared movement of Israelis and Palestinians who believe that the way towards peace, security and stability for all passes through two independent states, Israel and Palestine, within a joint framework allowing both peoples to live together and apart. Israeli-Jews and Arab-Palestinians are heavily intertwined on both side of the Green Line and therefore building walls between them is neither realistic nor desirable. Recognizing that both Jews and Palestinians are part of the same shared homeland, and respecting their equal individual and national rights, A Land for All provides pragmatic and viable solutions to the obstacles that have stymied prior negotiations, moving us from a paradigm of separation towards a future based on power sharing and shared interests.
The system of government in both Israel and Palestine will be democratic. Citizens of both states will enjoy equal rights in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Borders will be set between the two states, but they will be open. Israelis will be allowed to live in Palestine as Israeli citizens and Palestinian residents. Palestinians will be allowed to live in Israel as Palestinian citizens and Israeli residents
Two states should be established in this region between the Jordan and the sea – two independent, sovereign states, within the June 1967 borders, in full control of their territories, without one people occupying or controlling the other
This land, between the sea and the Jordan River, is one geographical and historical unit, which both people consider their homeland. You can draw borders in it, but you cannot put up walls. Instead of dividing it, both nations should share it
Past wrongs, from 1948 to present, will be amended, but without creating new wrongs. A joint mechanism will be established to ensure the restitution of property lost or confiscated as the result of the conflict or compensation
Jerusalem will remain one city open to all – Palestinians and Israelis, Jews, Muslims and Christians. It will be the capital of both states, under shared sovereignty and it will be administered under a joint municipal council
The two states will share institutions of a confederate nature, to decide on joint matters. The two states will decide on the powers granted to these institutions and the issues to be managed by each state individually.
The two states will be committed to the security of their citizens and to the security of the other state. Each state will have independent security forces, which will cooperate closely and jointly protect the external borders of the shared land
WHO WE ARE
ALFA was born, more than a decade ago, out of a series of meetings initiated by Israeli journalist Meron Rapoport and Palestinian activist Awni Al-Mashni. These discussions drew in a diverse group of Israelis and Palestinians, and ALFA's vision and political framework have since been honed by researchers, community leaders, and activists. ALFA is one shared vision, with Israelis and Palestinians operating both collaboratively as well as independently in their respective communities. ALFA is jointly led by May Pundak and Dr. Rula Hardal, two women dedicated to developing and championing shared futures.
On October 10th 2023, after a long preparatory process and, in an act that felt like a fragile miracle, ALFA held its first joint Board convening. Made up of Israelis and Palestinians from across the shared homeland - inside the green line and beyond it - the 14-member Board stands as a testament to ALFA's commitment to equal partnership. Our commitment to developing solutions jointly reflects the shared future we are working towards.
