Accession of the Hebrew nation to a future socialist federation of the Arab East can only be voluntary. Moreover, it would be a grave error on the part of socialists to condone, let alone advocate, attempts at a forcible accession. But this means that Hebrew accession to the federation would occur by exercising self-determination.

In 1997 I decided, as a student at Tel Aviv University, to write a seminar on Matzpen. At the end of that year a conference was held to mark 35 years since the organization was formed.
