What are your thoughts 'Future of Palestinians and Israelis'?
Do you have constructive ideas of how we as a community can contribute to change?
Lately some members were investing on promoting their one-sided view of the conflict, in many ways it is not what mepeace.org come to serve as we have so many one-sided sites such efforts just make members who are not in their one-side feel rejected.
As we are all here, no borders can we put aside our historic analysis and who is right who is wrong wisdom and bring in the how can we live together in one future wisdom?
a state is a tool to serve society, we have jewish society and arab society here and with all the pains of the past and present we need a governance structure and a state structure to serve all.
here is some of my thoughts:
We have two societies with very different world view, as the majority of the people are good people with good cooperative intentions, some ideologies we have in this two societies are conflicting.
The rule of the state is to contain the society and help it to focus its activity toward peaceful productive creative and safe life conditions. since we have deep gap between the Arab and the Jews we need to form two states as 1st stage. the goal of each state is to focus on reduce violence within each society and between both societies.
states have some danger as they tend to take freedom from individuals; religious freedom is one example. Many Israelis complain for having religious state and many palestinians fear from Hamas led government be such. this is a reason why we need to start create a format of confederation which will enable the autonomy of each state but can secure as higher authority to both entities freedom of religion and individual human rights and also enhance the economic power of us all.
The confederation is something we need, but we will be able to form it after we form the Palestinian state with agreed sustainable borders.
