We are Israelis who have joined together to demand that during 2017, the fiftieth year of Israeli rule over the Palestinian people, the critical decision which will determine the future of Israel be taken- one state or two states
Over the last fifty years Israeli governments have avoided making this decision and we, the citizens, have been dragged along, suffering the bitter consequences of indecision. We demand empowerment and the opportunity to make this critical decision through a referendum. This is why we - activists, public figures, artists, academics, former military personnel and educators – founded the Deciding at 50 initiative.
We believe that the time for a decision has come. Thus, we will use all means available for a public movement to create pressure upon the Knesset to enact legislation which will enable a referendum to take place in 2017. A referendum could constitute a turning point in Israeli history, leading to permanent borders, security, international acceptance, and internal solidarity
