Why Is Israel fail to deliver peace and how much is the "left wing" responsible for that ?
It is a fu**ing hard and complex question, and since I do not wish to Blame
the Israeli left I need to recognize that left and right wind activists are doing what they believe to be the true right thing to do.
To understand the dynamics I invite you to look on the The Assimilation-Contrast Effect
is grounded in Social Judgement Theory
, developed by Muzafer Sherif and his wife, Carolyn Wood Sherif
, in the 1960s. Their student Dr. Don Beck
integrate this with the work of Dr. Clair Graves
and bring some useful easy to understand concepts to understand this dynamics. you can read some about it here
with videos and some more deep description of Spiral Dynamics Integral VMeme
codes in the Center for Human Emergence
group on mepeace.org.
The Israelis who live today in Israel and many Arabs too wish to have Israeli entity, for them Israel is were they born and Hebrew
his their language to speak.
The Israelis in general want Peace, at the civilian level the majority accepts idea of Peace where Peaceful Palestine exist side of Israel and there are warm economic social relationship. Most of them understand that how to resolve the humanitarian issue of the Palestinians include recognizing the Naqba require complex arrangements
that need huge investments that require the "political/Governance" level to lead agreements and condition for mutual businesses to be created.
The "political/Governance" level is stuck
to manifest such idea since the dynamic of the "democratic elections" and "political divide" push toward shrinking of the Center of pragmatists
. Within Likud,Kadima and Avuda members exist
a silenced center of politicians who can change the balance but they are marginalized by collaboration actions of "left" and "right"
that through elections and coalition process have opportunity to dominant the policies.
Any proposal or idea forward is immediately judge if it is a "left" or a "right" and usually aggressively criticize by both sides since what ever is moderate it is not a "left wing" nor a "right wing" solution and the left and right activists are attacking the moderated ideas as they are extreme plan of the other wing. Any of the Politicians needs a good public image to run for election, so any of them need to be silent of ideas that attacking the left and right wing activists. these Politicians are considered "left wing" or "right wing" and they are stuck. Kadima is a new effort to get out of this trap, but we cannot be sure it works as Israel fall back to election year.
Some of the members here showed how from your their clearly "left wing" view all the parties that dominant the public are too "right wing". I probably will not be able to convince any of them because they need a "center wing view" to see our real practical rule to push and support "center wing view" thinking that will empower the silenced majority for action.
Their comments are typically anti "center wing view" attacks where the people who seek to create change through pragmatists
world view are argued against suggesting they are traitors or agents of the other side extremists.
it exists all over, and not only Israelis, Arabs too have such dynamics. So when we are working within our Israeli culture to change our relationships with the arabs and with ourselves we need to look for the "center wing view" too.
I invite you to also read that If you want development toward peace, you need to strengthen the moderate center
