From the New York Times:

"An initiative to establish an Israeli-Palestinian confederation and joint parliament was publicized Monday with a full page advertisement in the New York Times, aimed at recruiting 1,500 parliamentary candidates from both sides of the conflict.

"The initiative was launched by Israeli-born lawyer Josef Avesar, a California resident, and has been endorsed by former Israeli foreign minister Shlomo Ben Ami and Palestinian peace activist and National Council member Hanna Siniora .

"Elections for a planned joint Israeli-Palestinian parliament are to be held on December 12, and the Confederation’s website allows Israeli and Palestinians over the age of 21 to submit their candidacy for parliament member or president.

"The parliament is to include 300 members, elected by 300 voting districts encompassing Israel and the Palestinian territories. Candidates must declare online 'under penalty of perjury' that they are residents 'of Israel or Palestine.'

"The joint parliament is not intended to replace the existing Israeli and Palestinian legislatures, organizers explain, but rather help bridge the gap between the sides.

"According to the parliament’s constitution, legislation can only pass with the consent of both sides."

You could think about running, Irosie. They might even make you PM and George your water bearer.

Kind of like Switzerland.

"On December 12, 2012, Israelis and Palestinians will have the chance to vote—together—for a new government: a Confederation that will represent both peoples. The voters will elect Parliament members, a President and a Vice President.

"Those elected will work together as equals to draft legislation for peace. More than 650 candidates from the West Bank, Gaza and Israel are currently standing for election, demonstrating their willingness to serve in this government. Our goal is to have more than 1,500 candidates by the time of the elections."

Can you wrap your mind around the idea of Arabs in Gaza and Hebron communicating with a Jew in Tel-Aviv discussing solutions to their dilemma that benefits all of them?

That covers a lot of ground. We'll get back to you.

"The peoples of Palestine and Israel, in order to bring about peace and prosperity, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, promote the general welfare, and secure liberty for ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Israeli Palestinian Confederation..."

"We believe that the principles stated above will be achieved through the facilities of a mutual confederation, dedicated to fair representation of both the Israeli and the Palestinian peoples, and dedicated to achieving consensus through confederation principles."

What's your take on "the sun never sets?"

"The British Empire comprised the dominions, colonies, protectorates, mandates and other territories ruled or administered by the United Kingdom. It originated with the overseas colonies and trading posts established by England in the late 16th and early 17th centuries.

"At its height, it was the largest empire in history and, for over a century, was the foremost global power.[1] By 1922 the British Empire held sway over about 458 million people, one-fifth of the world's population at the time.[2]

"The empire covered more than 33,700,000 km2 (13,012,000 sq mi), almost a quarter of the Earth's total land area.[3][4] As a result, its political, legal, linguistic and cultural legacy is widespread.

"At the peak of its power it was often said that 'the sun never sets on the British Empire' because its span across the globe ensured that the sun was always shining on at least one of its numerous territories."

British Empire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Just because England choose to shine on its "little, loyal Jewish Ulster" doesn't mean the "chosen people" are exempt from the consequences of colonial crimes.

oh good---its the brits not the ZIONIST CONTROLLED CIA----The British empire was very large and it comitted lots of crimes----but it was actually not larger than the ISLAMIC EMPIRE The arab muslim colonial project which is still ONGOING and still engaged in genocide ---in all fairness ---must be held just as responsible for ITS CRIMES as the British Empire should be held for ITS CRIMES. An interesting aspect of CURRENT TIMES---is that the arab spring program is ---in fact----an effort on the part of ISLAMIC COLONIALISTS to rejuvenate and continue their criminal enterprise

I think its a great idea and have posted for a Confederation many times with no takers...The reason for me is that it allows for self-ruled states and yet may intergrate in defense and trade and should allow both peoples to visit both sides of the border, especially their Holy Places...

Pax Semitica or Israel without Zionism may be an idea whose time has come.

Uri Avnery has been writing about this for decades.
Maybe he's been right all along?
Somebody should have advised Moses of this information.
Do you still believe in Santa Claus too?

"The existence of Moses as well as the veracity of the Exodus story is disputed amongst archaeologists and Egyptologists, with experts in the field of biblical criticism citing logical inconsistencies, new archaeological evidence, historical evidence, and related origin myths in Canaanite culture.[3][4][5]

"Other historians maintain that the biographical details, and Egyptian background, attributed to Moses imply the existence of a historical political and religious leader who was involved in the consolidation of the Hebrew tribes in Canaan towards the end of the Bronze Age."
