Although it sounds a few but strong and deep, challenging Zionism and racism, are qualities leftist and real democracy, active in their positions and support the current National Democratic and considers advanced version of the discourse and practice that should open prospects for citizenship rights under a democratic state for all of its citizens.
Personalities Jewish leftist real considered speech assembly formula more progressive and humane so far, noting that some see that political discourse needs some modifications such as put one-state solution, but they agree that the importance of this speech lies in the fact that did not give answers to the cause of the Arabs at home, but answers The democratic and humane vision of the Jews as well.
D. Yehuda Shenhav: The Gathering is the most serious challenge to racism!
Although I am a Jew, but rather Jewish - Arab, I see in the national assembly as a partisan home because I have no doubt that the assembly puts the most serious challenge to the Zionists.
He added: The point of assembly shown again and again that he has no choice no alternative leftist real, but in this context, as well as not for the left be based within the Zionist discourse, and discourse, which was developed assembly over the past years is to see the task in front of the Jewish community and represents the point of view of the Palestinian minority on nationalism and civil rights, and that put power assembly is essentially indicate the possibility of formulating political demands in expressions and formulas social and democratic.
For example, the formula a state of all its citizens is not a term and only political formula, are put forward and the civilian and humanitarian formula essential to a minority, although this is a prerequisite for equality and therefore no objection to that by the Zionist left. This objection reveals defect, failure, and racism in the Jewish discourse.
I think there are a lot of things that need to be corrected in the political thought developed by assembly, especially the issue of the two countries and one state and make these corrections and modifications and I think that the assembly be conducted with the participation of Jews from leftist true so that we can together form the opposition leftist Arab-Jewish according to the vision of a real democracy .
