Henry Lowi, formerly a soldier in the IDF & a committed supporter of BDS, on Zionism & self-determination for Palestinians:

“For the Palestinians to freely decide for themselves, the Israeli military occupation and blockade would need to end, Israeli army, police, and undercover agencies would need to be removed from all communities inhabited by Palestinians, all political prisoners would need to be released, and all refugees and displaced persons would need to have the real opportunity to return. In short, overthrow and dismantlement of the Zionist regime. Then, and only then, will the Palestinians be able to freely exercise their right to self-determination. Nothing wrong with suggesting that they choose a democratic and not an undemocratic regime, a secular and not a theocratic regime, a regime in which Jews and Arabs can live peacefully and not at each other’s throats. Zionism is the obstacle that needs to be overcome.”
