Most of the fifty members of the Popular Movement for ODS live in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, but also in Turkey, Switzerland, England and the US.
Most of the thirty members of ODS in Palestine Ltd live in England, some remaining anonymous in order to avoid the wrath of the apartheid state.
It leans somewhat towards the collective political rights of groups of citizens, defined on ethnic criteria, rather than the strictly individual-rights approach of ODS.
Other active individuals insist that the word 'secular' should appear in the name or title of an ODS movement or group, but it remains to be seen if they will become publicly visible as such a group.
Finally,(http://www.alandforall.org/en) some liberal Zionists as well as the group(https://ijv.org.uk/2015/03/30/ijvs-equal-rights-conference-positive-principled-pragmatic-and-politically-focused/) Independent Jewish Voices have put forth the idea of(https://ijv.org.uk/2015/03/27/blak-alcott-on-the-equal-rights-for-all-conference/) a true democracy for all now living between the river and the sea, but their position of compromise on right of return and retention of the Israeli Law of Return is incompatible with ODS.
The fear of many supporters of ODS, however, is that acknowledging any collective rights defined in terms of race or religion could open the door to some such bi-nationalism, the ideology that there are two (actually there are more) ethnically-defined 'nations' in historic Palestine with equal collective rights: the old, false picture of parity, two sides with equal ethical claims fighting for one state.
Hamas of course envisions a re-unified independent Palestine and supports right of return without any ifs and buts, but likely differs from ODS in regarding as "Palestinians" only "Arabs who lived in Palestine until 1947", leaving the question of the citizenship of non-Arabs open.
Again, in portraying ODS we don't have to even mention the two-state solution, or its demise, its impossibility or even its blatant violation of most of the rights of the vast majority of Palestinians.
What's more, ODS can be argued for while avoiding any obsession with Israel, what it does, what it wants, who it is.
