Thumbs up THE ONLY PEACE PLAN FOR THE M/E

A PEACE PLAN or a PIECES BY PIECES PLAN? Please consider...





IN THE WAKE OF THE WAR IN IRAQ:
AN HISTORIC OPPORTUNITY
FOR A REGIONAL SOLUTION
TO THE ARAB-ISRAELI CONFLICT


A PEACE PLAN
PROPOSED BY
ISRAELI CABINET MINISTER BINYAMIN (BENNY) ELON



Why the Road Map won't work
The establishment of a Palestinian state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza (the West Bank), as proposed in plans such as the "Road Map", will only prolong the Arab- Israeli conflict and exact a heavy toll in human life.

As in previous failed agreements, this current one also defers the solution of the real problems that perpetuate the conflict:

The Palestinian demand for the right of return of refugees to areas within the State of Israel.
The rehabilitation of Palestinian refugees.
The status of Jerusalem.
The nature of the Palestinian state and its borders.

Within a short time, these unresolved problems will resurface and draw the region into yet another war.

While based on the principle of "two states for two nations", the proposed Road Map does not achieve that goal.

It is not a "two state solution" at all. Without the complete destruction of Israel, Palestinian Arabs can only be offered a state-like entity, unable to sign international agreements, without an army and made up of a number of small and overcrowded fragments of territory.

This quasi-state would not have natural borders. Rather, population centers on both sides will straddle the border, perpetuating continued friction between Israelis and Palestinians.

The Palestinian entity's economy will be permanently dependent on Israel.

This entity would be an Israeli protectorate, leading to an intensification of the sense of humiliation felt by Palestinian Arabs who would aspire to encroach further into Israeli territory.

The refugee problem will not be solved through this entity and Palestinian Arab demands for the right of return will continue to threaten Israel's existence. The motivation for terror will remain high.

From every aspect - geographic, economic and demographic - it is clear that it will be impossible to resolve the problem within the small, overcrowded area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.

Why - after the failure of the Oslo agreements - are we reverting to a model already proven catastrophic for both sides?

It is clear that what is needed is a paradigm shift.


Introduction to the Elon Peace Plan
Only with application of a regional solution that includes the entire territory of British Mandatory Palestine (land of Israel) can the peace process be delivered from its impasse. A regional solution based on geopolitical and economic logic can provide the Middle East with long-term peace, prosperity and stability.

The American and British coalition victory in Iraq has spurred an American commitment to instill democratic values in the Middle East and establish a new political map. This is an historic opportunity to enable the Arab nations to be part of the solution to the Palestinian problem and garner international support and funding.

The Elon Peace Plan addresses the fundamental issues related to the conflict and offers a comprehensive solution for Israel, Palestinian Arabs and surrounding countries.

Expanding the solution to include both sides of the Jordan River creates a new reality in which:

Israelis and Palestinian Arabs can exist alongside one another in two genuine, sovereign states.
A well-defined natural border would be established, far from population centers.
Both states would have strategic depth and ample land reserves.

Dealing directly with final-status issues, the Elon Peace Plan offers:

An immediate permanent-status settlement to end the conflict.
Full and comprehensive rehabilitation of Palestinian refugees.
The granting of national expression and full rights for all Palestinian Arabs.
Removal of the threat to Israel's existence as a Jewish state.


Key principles of the Elon Peace Plan
1. Immediate dissolution of the Palestinian Authority, a non-viable entity with no future, whose existence precludes the termination of the conflict. Dissolution of the Palestinian Authority

------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Israel will uproot the Palestinian terror infrastructure. All arms will be collected, incitement will be stopped and all the refugee camps, which serve as incubators for terror, will be dismantled. Terrorists and their direct supporters will be deported. Eradication of terror infrastructure

------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Israel, the United States and the international community will recognize the Kingdom of Jordan as the only legitimate representative of the Palestinians. Jordan will once again recognize itself as the Palestinian nation-state.

In the context of a regional economic development program, Israel, the United States and the international community will put forth a concerted effort for the long-term development of Jordan, to rehabilitate its economy and enable it to absorb a limited number of refugees within its borders. Recognition and Development of Jordan as the Palestinian State

------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Israeli sovereignty will be asserted over Judea, Samaria and Gaza (the West Bank). The Arab residents of these areas will become citizens of the Palestinian state in Jordan. The status of these citizens, their connection to the two states and the manner of administration of their communal lives will be decided in an agreement between the governments of Israel and Jordan (Palestine). Israeli sovereignty over Judea, Samaria and Gaza

------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. Israel, the United States and the international community will allocate resources for the completion of the exchange of populations that began in 1948, as well as the full rehabilitation of the refugees and their absorption and naturalization in various countries. Rehabilitation of refugees and completion of population exchange

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. After implementation of the above stages, Israel and Jordan-Palestine will declare the conflict terminated. Both sides will work to normalize peaceful relations between all parties in the region. Peace and normalization

For more rationale and details: Principles 1-2 | Principle 3 | Principle 4 | Principles 5-6


Underlying principles of the Elon Peace Plan:
No other proposal addresses final-status issues. The Elon plan offers a way to translate the achievements of the war in Iraq into a new "Marshall Plan" for the Middle East, a plan that is based, on the one hand on Israel, the only stable democracy in the region, and, on the other, on Jordan which has a quasi-democratic government, thus removing the Palestinian terrorist regime from the picture.
The Elon Peace Plan manifests: The Elon Plan proposes a simple, sustainable solution that achieves historic justice and advances the vision of the prophets. It addresses the human tragedies of all the sides and does not harm Israeli deterrence - the most vital element for regional peace

------------------------------------------------------------------------


Simplicity
Two states for two nations on either side of the Jordan River. This solution offers a natural and logical border, separation of hostile populations and an end to the human tragedy that has continued since the War of Independence.

Sustainability
This plan grants the Palestinian Arabs citizenship in a real state that has the ability to sustain itself economically and politically, with clear and final borders. This state would not find itself in constant conflict with Israel and its future would not be predicated on the destruction of Israel as a Jewish state.

Morality
This plan prioritizes the treatment of human issues over empty symbols. "Peace" proposals that are based on continued conflict perpetuate poverty, violence and ignorance. The Elon Peace Plan brings about a solution to the Palestinians. suffering without capitulating to terror and violence.

Deterrence
An Israeli withdrawal of any kind would severely harm Israel's national strength while reinforcing the motivation for terror. The Elon Peace Plan preserves Israel's deterrent capabilities, making it possible for the first time to delineate secure and recognized borders.

Justice
The secure existence of Israel corrects a historic injustice. The essence of Zionism is to establish a state for the Jewish people, a safe haven for millions of Jewish refugees from all over the world including from the Arab countries.
The Arab world must be involved in a resolution of the Arab refugee issue, using its vast territorial expanses and abundant natural resources.

This is not only justice in its most elementary sense - that of human decency - but also draws on deep Biblical sources, which view the Jewish people as a nation with a unique destiny and place in history.

This plan is founded on the fundamental historic and Biblical truth that the land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people.

However, it realizes only part of this principle because it accepts the existence of a Palestinian state east of the Jordan River, part of the Biblical land of Israel.

The realization of the Zionist dream - the return of the Jewish people to its land from all corners of the earth - is a historic event of global significance.

Only when Israel's Arab neighbors accept its right to exist within secure boundaries as a fundamental reality, will regional peace and prosperity be achieved.

shalom dear fellow trooper,

until the individual is in possession of his will his testement dishonest,
one man can be understanding with a other in strangest compassions.
now that one is able to be reasonable and proved to be not ab normal.
my dictionary said that a norm was a carpenters square like Jesus wore.

until the day of eternity we will continue to repeat the same mistakes.
we learn to understand the principles of reason in acts of negotiation.
from first principles to the effects of the intentions our understanding
of them and that we need food clothing and shelter for the poor man.

an objective that is practical for men to learn the ways of peacefulness.
be subjected to the predicate of the meaning in each sentence to reason.
you tell the truth as you have your experiance with the consequences of it.
i tell the truth the way that i pray the true god is seeing this splendid misery.

the secrets of heaven belong down here upon the earth for the holy children.
the demons have been disturbing the communities peace for a long long time.


thankyou for the time spent meditating upon these thoughts about in kinship.
the problem is putting the theory into common everyday principles of practice.

Goodly words there. Still, a peace plan is a peace plan - and a destructive plan is one perpertrated in a piece by pieces, guised as a peace by peace. Eurabia is inclined to accept only Israel being dead right: I think Eurabia is dead wrong.

Stories and myths have had there day.
Reality is what proves to be true for eternity not just what is convenient for you today to believe in. The double tongues out there man what can you do about them? The hypocricy of it all. "White man speak with forked tongue"
Says one thing does another etc. Contradictions verses humility at the detraction of the contradictions and blah blah and more blah.

Where there is smoke there is fire, there is fuel, there is energy there is consumption time for the sanitorium, please be patient .
