A New Palestinian Movement: Young, Networked, Nonviolent

"The goal is to liberate the minds of our people," says Najwan Berekdar, an Israeli-born Arab who is a women’s-rights activist. "We want to get past all the old identities—Fatah, Hamas, religious, secular, Israeli and Palestinian Arab —and create a mass nonviolent movement." Berekdar has touched on an idea that might prove truly threatening to Israelis: a "one state" movement uniting Palestinians on both sides of the current border.

Among all the other fascinating tensions, the possible emergence of a “one state” vision up against the “two state solution” could be most interesting - not to mention alarming for the merchants of the “peace process”.  What would the flag of such a movement look like?
