Issue number 23 of the review Dialogue has just come out. In this issue, you will find contributed articles justifying the need to organize and pursue a democratic debate, internationally, based on the recognition of the inalienable right of peoples to self-determination and on the fact that a people who oppresses another will never be a free people. This debate is being organized by all those – more and more numerous – who refuse the crimes that are commited in their name, such as Haim Bresheeth, university professor in England and the author of an article entitled “Israel’s politics and the West : the more it changes, the more it remains the same” or Ben Ehrenreich, an American writer who has sent our editors an article denouncing Zionist usurpation. This is also the debate of Palestinian youth and supporters, confronted with the dismantling of their traditional political representation – consequence of the Oslo Agreements – who are seeking to take back the democratic foundation of their movement for national liberation. For all of them, there can be no peace without justice. There can be no justice without reference to the democratic claims and demands of the Palestinian People. The review Dialogue proposes that members of the labour and democratic movement contribute to this necessary discussion.
For the editorial board, Jean Pierre Barrois and François Lazar.
