Israeli/Palestinian Solution
    #1514418 - 05/02/03 11:48 AM (17 years, 5 months ago)

This is part of my final exam, object is to discuss issues of the crisis, and a working solution. This is just a semi-rough draft ... you can catch the ideas though ... any feedback is welcome!

The rallying cry used in the early stages of Zionism brings to bear the essential conflict between Israel and Palestine. The slogan proposed that the lands of Palestine are ?? a land without people, for a people without land ...? despite the fact these lands were already a richly populated state. When the Ottoman Empire collapsed after the First World War, the lands of Palestine came under the mandate of the British Empire. To garner support against the Ottoman Empire, Britain issued the Balfour Declaration stating that Britain would endorse the ambitions of the Zionists as reparation for their support. However, the Brits had also made a similar agreement in the ?Something note, letter?, to the indigenous people of Palestine.
It seems that there are many different sides to the metaphorical? coin of Palestine, for even the contend the contrary in that Palestinians hold no valid claim to the holy lands, as they were simply a province of the Ottoman Empire.

Coins of Israel
Zionists
US
Palestinians
Arabs
US
Russia

Bring out direct/indirect colonization ? if one takes the example of India, and Algeria, and then Palestine, one can see increasing degrees of violence to which the occupied resorted, too. India = British let Indians into government jobs, had only a few incidents of massacre, Sepoy, etc ? Algeria = French forced their ideals upon the Algerians, seen as the New France ? Israel = total annihilation of indigenous people.
In 20?s settlers and natives have good relationship. If it is so true that the differences of Palestinians and Israelis are not religious, Israelis and Palestinians can within a society of religious tolerance.
As was once decreed in the United Resolution 242 is to Israel gives back the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and Sinai Peninsula to Palestinians.
Israel has the resources and capital to control the citrus, and textile?, industries located on the major port cites of ?. Palestinians, as they make of ?% the Israeli labor force, have the means to work for these companies. This could provide the Palestinian states the resource to develop their lands in the Gaza Strip and West Bank, thus decreasing the economic disparities between relations between Israeli and Palestinian people. Palestine would have control over its own ?destiny?. No longer under the thumb of Zionism.
Money made from taxes is under the control of Palestinian state, which will distribute accordingly.
Establish representatives for both sides? Or shall speak for the voice of many?
Breaking of Geneva Conventions ? stop collective punishment in the which the families of suspected criminals have their homes destroyed. Rights and due process for all those in judicial system.
Israel as a colonial outpost ? decrease American support.

Brother, you are not helping the Palestinian cause; or the struggle to educate others on Islam with your radical approach to the conflict. It is completely useless to fight against Israel - and that is a sad reality. Israel isn't going anywhere, and the mindset of "kill the zionists until they are no more" is unreasonable and just plain ignorant considering the reality of the situation - the reality that Israel is very powerful and is supported by the United States. Already, violence is starting up in the region just days after Mahmoud Abbas was sworn into office.

Yes, the Israelis for God knows how long have been murdering our brothers and sisters, and stealing their land. In fact given everything that has happened to the Palestinians, its quite understandable why some of them choose to resist with force; but all it does is create a bloody circle. Like I said, Israel will exist until the day Allah (swt) rolls up the universe. The Palestinians are not going to "drive the jews into the sea"; hell, a coalition of Arab nations couldn't even do it. Right now we need to accept Israel is here; there are millions of people living there and the state is armed to the teeth. It's an illegal state, but it exists in stone. The late Egyptian President Sadat is a good example of a road to peace.

Salaam.

Arafat should have taken the deal he was offered by Barok back in the early 90's.

Plus America, Israel, The UK, and possibly Germany should chip in for massive reconstruction of the region.

If the Palestinians could stop being such freak ass monkey people for a couple decades, they could have themselves a nice little country over there.

After War of 1967 The Golan Heights were taken from Syria, b/c Syria was bombing Israel from the Golan Heights prior to the war. After Syria was defeated, Israel had no reason to give back this land.

According to UN Resolution 181, Palestine was partitioned into two states, one Jewish and one Arab. The Jewish community of Palestine accepted partition despite the small size and strategic vulnerability of the proposed state. Palestine had Gaza, West Bank, Jerusalem, most of the Galilee in the North, and parts of the Negev desert in the South. Yet Israel was attacked on all sides in 1967, and the loser lost land as a result.

Jewish terrorism in Palestine antagonized the British, and by February 1947 Arab-Jewish communications had collapsed. Britain was eager to rid their mandate of Palestine requesting on April 2, 1947, that the U.N. General Assembly set up the Special Committee on Palestine. This committee recommended that the British mandate over Palestine be ended and that the territory be partitioned into two states. This was passes and became known as Reolution 181.

Has it ever occured to you that THE MEDIA IS BIAS AND SHOWS YOU SHIT THAT YOUR ANTI-ISRAEL ASS WANTS TO HEAR???? For example: When a suicide bombing occurs and shrap metal maims or kills its victims WHICH ARE MOST OF THE TIME INNOCENT CIVILIANS. Is it wrong for these extremists to be doing this??? Then right after this attack occurs, Israel finds out who the Bomber's family is and goes to kill them. Is this wrong??? It's like Fuck with us and we'll come kill your family! A great motive to try n stop these bombings huh? There was another instance that comes to mind when there was a Palestinian extremist refuge was RIGHT NEXT TO a children's hospital. There's endless examples of how media makes "Useful Idiots" of use of ppl around the world.

You say Sharon is a war criminal... I say he's putting his foot down and not being a fucking pussy to the extremists and Arafat's bitch ass. All this fighting WOULD STOP if the muslim extremists STOP.

The entire world is responsible for the plight of the Palestinians. Who is defending their interests? If you think suicide bombing is barbaric and therefore the Palestinians deserve to fester in refugee camps, then let's give THEM 3 billion dollars so we can make this a fair fight. That'll solve your suicide bombing ... shit, the Pals wouldn't even have to use their weaponry ... Israel would just back off.

People love an underdog, and therefore, theres always going to be sympathy for the Palestinians. Not to say they dont have a valid grievence, I identify much more with them than I do with Israel.

Israel, in my opinion, is unwilling to make the concessions that would guarantee peace. Thats what you get when you revolve your entire country around religion. Which all you Bush-Ites out there are going to have on your hands in a few years...

Why would you give the Palestinians more money??? They?re the ones invoking the violence. Israel is reacting and fed up with their bullshit.

Quote:

You?re wrong... The Palestinians believe that all of Israel belongs to them. JUST recently, Sharon gave land to the Palestinians and Arafat said it?d bring more peace. AND BOOM here?s another suicide attack.

Here?s some food for thought


I don?t sympathize the Palestinians one bit. They?re dirty rotten scoundrels(the Muslim extremists). And you say that giving land would bring peace. WELL IF YOU LOOK AT THAT MAP ABOVE, If Rabin weren?t assassinated and all that land were given away then that would cut Israel in half making it even more vulnerable to attack. Sharon?s approach is much more realistic, but that?s beside the fact. There?d be peace if the muslim extremists stopped their shit. Easy as that.

It was a British Mandate where Palestinians and Jews both lived in Palestine. Jews were still persecuted then.
Arab Revolt of 1936-39 where Brit soldiers did little to nothing to try n suppress the rioters while they killed and wounded jews.
The Arab strike ended in October 1936 and a temporary peace between Arabs and Jews prevailed for almost a year. Then, in September 1937, following the July report by the Peel Commission, the violent tactics resumed. Armed Arab terrorism, under the direction of the Higher Committee, was used to attack the Jews and to suppress Arab opponents. This campaign of violence continued through 1938 and then tapered off, ending in early 1939. The toll was terrible: Eighty Jews were murdered by terrorist acts during the labor strike, and a total of 415 Jewish deaths were recorded during the whole 1936-1939 Arab Revolt period.

http://www.palestinefacts.org/pf_mandate_riots_1936-39.php

This led Britain to let UN to take care of this bullshit so then there became Resolution 181.

Extremists you mean??? I need to get a map of what Rabin was gonna give to the Palestinians. It was a LOT more than what Barak wanted to give. Don't you see that Israel would have jack shit of land if they gave it away, and for what TEMPORARY peace? That seems to be the case of what has always occured and what has just occured recently.

And its silly to say that if the Palestinians stopped, all would be dandy. Israel is completely un-able to act rationally. They destroy the Palestinian Police, then get angyr when said Police cant stop suicide bombers. They refuse to let Palestinians come into Israel to work, and then get angry when they're unemployed. The bulldoze the homes of innocent families, and then wonder why young men are angry enough to kill themselves, for a measure of revenge...Its all completely crazy, and I dont know that anyone knows a solution.

Go research this before you make statements like that.

I've said what I've had to say.

When you hear something about when Israel does something that the Media exagerates then go look at the Jerusalem Post to see what they say. You'll see all the Jews that were killed instead of the Muslims.

Part of the solution would be to get rid of the leader of the Palestinians, Arafat, who has been a terrorist for the last 25 years. The leader corrupts the entire Palestinian movement. He recieved a nobel peace prize 10 years ago(w/ Rabin), yet the whole time undermining the peace process and proceeding with the terrorism.

I'll agree with you that Arafat is completely irrelevent. But I think you'll find that the palestinians dont support him either. But who do you replace him with? The new Palestinian Prime Minister is even worse...

And research? What do you want me to research? I could post western media reports of exactly the things I've said happens. It happens ALL the time. Dont deify Israel.

They're trying to get rid of Arafat now but he won't stand down.

Right. But who's better? I mean, you see the new PM. Nobody will listen to him either...hell, the extremists hate him.

Here's the near finished product ... there are a couple of things I'm going to amend. Bon apetit.

Throughout history Judaism has been the samud salmon of assimilative flow. This non-submission did not grease well with the cogs of nationalism, whose remedy was the massacre, persecution, and dispossession of the Jewish people. Over time it became apparent that a homeland was necessary to serve as a sanctuary for the Jews. The rallying cry used in the early stages of Zionism brings to bear the essential conflict between Israel and Palestine. The slogan proposed that the lands of Palestine were ?? a land without people, for a people without land ...? despite the fact these lands were in fact already populated. When the Ottoman Empire collapsed after the First World War, the lands of Palestine came under the mandate of the British Empire. To garner support against the Ottoman Empire, Britain issued the Balfour Declaration stating that Britain would endorse the ambitions of the Zionists as reparation for their support. However, the British had also made a similar agreement to the indigenous people of Palestine. Initially, the Palestinians and the Zionist lived harmoniously, until the end of World War II when millions of Jews would seek Israel as a sanctuary from persecution. It is possible for the Israelis and Palestinians to live in unison again, as they once did before the great migration after the Second World War. Both sides must cooperate greatly to attain peace, but Israel and its supporters must make the first and last contributions.
The most important obstacle in the quest for peace is the issue of security for both Palestinians and Israelis alike. Both sides seem to agree that peace can only be discussed once the violence ceases, but differ as to who is the aggressor. To understand why brutal violence has become a necessity to resistance, one must understand the nature of power under which the Palestinians have been dominated. The method of direct or indirect colonization is clearly an indentifier to resulting oppositional violence. If one takes the example of India and Algeria, the level of involvement to which the occupying country resorted will explain the reactions of the occupied.
Britain?s involvement in India was one of indirect colonization. The occupation of India was strictly one of economic advantage, thus allowing Indians into the infrastructure of power lessened the number of British officers needed for occupation. British governmental and representative positions were offered, though not initially, to well-educated Indians, and the resulting coup was one of non-violence met with little incident of bloodshed.
France?s occupation of Algeria was one of cultural dominance and proliferation. The French forced the Algerians to abandon their culture and adopt that of the French, as this occupying power foresaw Algeria as a ?New France?. Algerians were allowed no part in government, and the French even went so far as to conduct false elections to temporarily appease the Algerians. The resulting revolution was one of unprecedented violence, which was unquestionably due to France?s attempts to convert the Algerians.
To understand the issue of violence between the Palestinians and Israelis one must consider the method of occupation that the Israelis have used. It is clear that Israel?s agenda of fragmentation and strangulation of the Palestinian state is greatly responsible for the degree of violence in Israel. Furthermore, the Palestinians have no control over their own fate, as their only representative is recognized neither by the governing power of Israel or the Palestinian people.
If peace is so truly desired by the Israeli government, then the first step is theirs to make, as they hold the lands to which the Palestinians hold claim. As was once decreed in the United Resolution 242, Israel must give back the West Bank and Gaza Strip to the Palestinians in order to move the wheels of peace. The most important step of the peace process is to allow the return of Palestinians to the West Bank and Gaza Strip and the removal of Israeli settlers in these lands.
There must be an organization of a Palestinian state before the notion of representation is to be considered. If the Gaza Strip and the West Bank are still to be included within in the perimeter of Israel, then the Palestinians must have credible representation in the government of Israel. This will be a difficult task in itself. The Palestinian people must be allowed to choose a leader to represent them.
Furthermore, taxes collected in these lands must be returned equally to the people from whom they are taken, which can be provided through social programs such as the building of new homes for Palestinian refugees, health institutions, or education.
Decreasing the economic disparity between Israel and Palestine is a mutually benefiting goal. The Palestinians currently play a decisive role in the economic stability of Israel, as they are the majority of Israel?s labor force. Though it is agreed that security of Israel is defined by the unflinching integrity of its borders, there must be revisions to the policies of movement between the new Palestinian states and Israel. Once a Palestinian state has been designed, Israel must allow Palestinians free movement across its borders. If peace is to prevail, then Palestine must have a means of survival. Allowing the Palestinians moderate free movement through Israel will provide this means, and violence should, in turn, decrease. Israel will benefit greatly from this, as it will no longer be necessary to spend so much on defensive measures.
Peace cannot simply be obtained by a partition between Palestinians and Israelis. As they once lived in the early 20th century in unison, they shall do so once again. Palestine and Israel must merge to form a unified state in which both sides have equal representation within the government.
Once the Palestinians have land to make their homes and raise their families, Israel must disengage in its many practices that break the concessions of the Geneva Conventions. These practices in question include collective punishment, in which the families of suspected criminals pay dearly for crimes that may or may not have been committed. Moreover, Palestinians can no longer be victim to ethnic profiling, or arrested on false charges. Backers of these practices may claim that these are necessary for ensuring the safety of Israel, but if Palestinians are allowed the aforementioned concessions, the safety of Israel will not be such a dire issue requiring the use of such questionable tactics. If a Palestinian is taken into custody, they are to be afforded the same rights of an Israeli taken into the law. If one is to claim that Palestinians are not citizens of Israel, thus the privileges of Israeli citizens do not extend to the Palestinian, this will be solved with the inclusion of Palestine and Israel in a unified state.
Israel is commonly seen in the Middle East as a colonial outpost, as it supports the United States in it undesired occupations in the Middle East, and is supported by the United States in its desire to crush the Palestinian people. American support, which amounts to 3 billion dollars a year, is largely returned to the US industry as arms purchasing. American support must not be stopped, as the reconstruction of the region will take large amounts of capital. But, this support must be redirected into specific social institutions for the Palestinians and Israelis, to help to ease the tension of creating a unified state.

The palestinian people, yet another reason that the US deserves to be bombed by terrorists. *shakes head* Palestine never was a nation, the term was used first when Isreal was conquered by the Romans. they named them palestine in reference to the phillestines, an enemy of the Jews. Palestine is as much a nation as Rastafaria is. If all of these Arab nations wanted the Palestineans to have their own nation, theyd designate a plot of land in Saudi Arabia and give it to them. as usual, the Arabs just want to stir up more shit, and give their oppressed peoples a faceless "victim" for their oppression so the people won't see it's their own brutal dictators that are responsbile for their way of lives.

I see what you're saying but you're missing The War of 67'. Israel acquired the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and Golan Heights from self-defense. I believe they gave back the Gaza Strip to Egypt and have peace with them now.

Palestine had Gaza, West Bank, Jerusalem, most of the Galilee in the North, and parts of the Negev desert in the South. Yet Israel was attacked on all sides in 1967, and the loser lost land as a result.

WIll peace prevail if Israel gives this land back? Well, they've given land back and the bombings still happen... Just recently Sharon made a deal giving more land to Palestine and then another bombing.

From the Arab point of view, ALL of Israel's land belongs to them. Israel is fending them off and trying to live it's way without the bullshit.
