The Long Term Plan in More detail

This is a brief document that explains a plan to hopefully bring an end to the Palestinian Israeli conflict. Currently as it stands both Israel and Palestine lay claim to the same plot of ground. As we are all aware this is causing a lot of suffering for all people in the region. As such I seek to create a shared state in the region that is jointly run by both the Palestinians and the Israelis as it is unreasonable to ask one people group to leave the land as both the Palestinians and Israelis have along history in the region.

Firstly I seek to slightly modify the current system of government over the region. The government of the region is currently run by Israel, I seek to make a small change to this. The new government will be a joint / shared government. Made up in the following way. The system and procedures of the current government will not alter. However the following amendment will be made. Based upon population size there shall be an equally weighted percentage of Palestinian representatives, i.e. if the population is 60% Israeli and 40% Palestinian, 60% of politicians must be Israeli and 40% Palestinian, there must at all times be at least one Palestinian representative. The Palestinian representatives will also have a special power of veto over any legislation involving their people group. This means any policy that relates to the life, housing, or territory, of a Palestinian must be approved by the Palestinian representative to be passed in parliament. This will mean that the Israeli part of the government will not be able to effect the lives of Palestinians with out the approval of the Palestinian people group. These Palestinian representatives will be voted into power by the Palestinian people, who shall retain their ethnicity, and identity as a people group with in the nation. The following regards issues regarding territory. All territory will become owned by the people of the region, it will no longer be called Israel, nor Palestine, but rather the Israeli - Palestinian territory. However as naming is very important to the nation of Israel, the land can still be legally represented by the name Israel, and for the sake of the Palestinian - Palestine. The current Gaza strip and other regions shall be dissolved and treated as a part of the combined state. Equal wealth must be shared out in current Palestinian areas, there can be on favoritism based upon ethnicity.

Observations So Far

The bible says, Pro 18:17 "The first to put forth his case seems right, until someone else steps forward and cross-examines him". This information was gained by spending time over the Internet conversing with Palestinians, after promoting a message of peace to approximately 200,000 people. As such it presents the view that I percieved by talking to those who commented. There is a lot of depth to the conflict in the region, and I don't know every thing, neither do I suggest that I represent the Palestinian view point, neither the official view of Hamus. However I have spent many years studying the religion of the region, and feel that I can present a balanced view of their plight. I have not spent time studying the Israeli view point, however being a Christian I have a good knowledge of the biblical history and religious scriptures that have an influence on the political side of Israel.

After presenting a simple message to the region of Israel and Palestine with the goal of turning hearts of the people of the region towards mutual trust and acceptace the following information was gained through conversations with people who had been exposed to the message.

The Palestinian Side

I do not claim to have the solution for Palestine however my observations of things that could be helpful.

The Jews and Israel could

The World

Don't mistreat someone who has mistreated you. But try to earn the respect of others, and do your best to live at peace with everyone. Dear friends, don't try to get even. Let God take revenge. In the Scriptures the Lord says, "I am the one to take revenge and pay them back." The Scriptures also say, "If your enemies are hungry, give them something to eat. And if they are thirsty, give them something to drink. This will be the same as piling burning coals on their heads." Don't let evil defeat you, but defeat evil with good. - Romans 12:17-21 The Bible CEV
