    The reality that emerged in 1967 has already changed. What needs to change is the reality that emerged in 1948. Since 1967, the reality of settler-colonialism and apartheid has deepened. Also, since 1967, a modern Palestine liberation movement has emerged. Palestinians in Israel, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, in the refugee camps and in exile, have stepped forward to say: We will settle for nothing less than justice, peace, and democracy. The refugees have the right to return. The people have the right to live without military occupation. The people have the right to equality, and a regime where rights and privileges are not dependent on ethnicity. It is the racist regime that was established in 1947-48 that must be replaced by a democratic regime. Many people in Israel, and abroad, understand this message, and are willing to help.
