    Official Government Website for Palestine-Israel Peace Process

    It is clear that if the Palestinian-Israeli peace process is going to move forward in the Middle East the playing field is going to have to be more fare and transparent. A step towards this goal could be accomplished with the creation of an official governmental website for all the parties involved to post their government positions. The members of the Quartet would each have their own section as well as Israel, Palestine, and the Arab League. Each member could post their official position as well as replies on issues involving the peace process. This would be a table that the world’s people and nations could see all of the cards on the table.

    This website could be translated into many different languages for people to read. This would improve the transparency to who is saying and doing what in the peace process. It would create a platform for very little misunderstanding to what is being said and would be equal to all sides. Official proposals of peace could be posted by any of the parties with official responses being made and recorded as part of the official record.

    Over time the positions on certain issues change of one side or the other. An official website for the peace process could help keep the record straight on the current government position on all sides. Helping to improve the transparency to the position of all sides will be a good step towards peace. Establishing links to other newly created websites that will become apart of the progress towards peace in the region. Let the official debate on the issues of peace, security, and justice be on an equal and balance platform for the world to see.

    The official government website would be an added platform in the peace process. The peace talks and negotiations would continue to operate in the same format. The website would be another platform that all sides could post their views and current position. Giving everyone equal access to information on all sides.

    Good question...

    What peace process?

    The one you are talking about is the "surrender process".

    I think you've already made it clear, Israel needs to surrender. Right?

    Absolutely right... if by surrender you mean:

    Sharing the stolen territory with the natives of the land.

    I still have what I think is a pretty fair and honest question. Who decided that this land was an area that nobody wanted?

    LOL

    Dillo stop picking on Hobbit will ya? : )

    Leave the poor young man alone... I think he supports Israel on religious grounds.

    As an individual born and raised by an evangelical family, I know first hand, there’s nothing you can do in this case except respect your relative’s personal beliefs.

    Now behave yourself : )

    No, I don’t know how it was determined...

    I wish I did.

    It’s is indeed a crucial question.

    Depending on the answer I could even become a supporter of Israel.

    They say opinions are like assholes everybody has one.

    Anyway... here’s mine...

    One of the ways to delegitimise the palestinian cause and, at the same time legitimise Israel, is to portray pre-Israel western palestine as a wasteland, inhabited by a bunch of arabs with no specific national identity and who couldn’t care less about their land.

    If only these individuals knew that the palestinian specific national identity was created EXACTLY by Israel, was created by what they call Nakhba, the catastrophe of dispossession when the jewish state was created.

    The struggle for the homeland lost to Israel is what differentiate a palestinian from a iraqi or syrian arab.

    This is why I laugh when I read many of David’s posts:

    In the future palestinian state, the Gaza strip will be divided in three sections:

    Section A = industry

    Section B = agriculture

    Section C = services

    etc... etc... etc....etc


    David, I’m not mocking your posts ok? They are all well intentioned.

    But the future palestinian state you envisage in your mind will never exist, buddy...

    All your elaborate plans are just a well intentioned waste of time.

    You sound like a westener who is sympathetic to the palestinian cause but don’t know the palestinian people first hand...

    Listen David...

    When you ask a palestinian arab to accept the ethnic cleansing of 78% of Palestine so that your future state can become a reality, you are in fact asking him to give up being a palestinian arab.

    You are asking him to abandon his own specific national identity forged during the creation of Israel.

    And this, David, is something palestinian arabs will never be able to do.
