Rough rough draft
For heaven's sake, so to speak, let's settle this for the good of the people involved here.
Ready William Ury's book Getting To Yes - and just agree to use that.
The annihilation of Israel is not a solution, so it would be useful to give up the idea of a war.
A war would be very destructive and to unrepairable harm for decades.
The Palestinians are not doing well and also are only harming themselves, with no progress and alot of damage.
THE PALESTINIAN PEACE AND PROSPERITY PLAN
Peace would give the opportunity for all to begin to repair and rebuild.
Palestine cannot, in its current state, do the rebuilding. It needs to build knowledgeable people who can help in the rebuilding - and that is a long term proposition. Religious based hate and race based hate is only a self-destroying hate - and it needs to be re-thought out to figure out what would be the most ethical path - the path that would actually stop the current damage and would do the greatest good for the people involved.
The United States should redirect some of its $3 billion per year in its foreign aid to Israel and add it to the $200 million it is currently providing to Palestine. (Other countries are also helping with Palestine's shortfall, but amazingly most of the aid is not from Arab countries, even the wealthy ones.)
The Palestinian deficit is about $1.5 billion. The contribution of the U.S. would be set at 2 billion a year for ten years, but would be reduced by any graft (the estimate of the US is the determinant)
The condition for this shift in aid would be that both parties agree to a peac and that Palestine agree to give up the intention to destroy Israel and to guarantee its peace. Each violation of the agreement by either party would reduce the amount for the year by $50,000 - for each rocket fired into Israel. For each terrorist killing an Israeli there would be a $300,000 deduction. Yes, Palestinians cannot control the radical groups but they sure can put on the pressure and make it obvious that the radical groups do not benefit the Palestinian people. The Palestinian people need to be responsible for creating a good government and responsible for the actions of its people. The Israelis, though often just retaliating, would have to avoid these raids and would have to give up $100,000 for each raid, even if it is only retaliatory.
If there are excessive violations on either side, the US could withdraw up to 75% of the per year commitment
With peace, other countries could be more contributory.
Expertise would be required to help Palestine begin to be adequately productive. With a safe atmosphere, companies could build factories and employ people. There could be successful farms developed, by Palestinians themselves as owners or foreigners who would have to employ Palestinians to do the work.
Each killing of a foreigner by any warlike Palestinian would cost the Palestinian people $300,000.
It is a cost-benefit that is good for the U.S., repairing fences...
and stopped with any government that seeks to destroy israel. It'sa relatively small amount of money change image and dynamics of the wars.....
pull aid, offer to help palestinians develop their country and x amoung of aid dependent on peace accord and no. of attackes (ju=dge?)
interesting assertion, that would seem to have some logic to it (or seem "obvious"):
To this day, American support for Israel, especially in the form of military aid is the major reason for anti-American sentiment in the Arab world and plays an important role in fueling anti-American violence. http://www.cnionline.org/issues/us-aid-to-israel/
and from that same source: Every year Israel receives about $3 billion in American aid, more than any other country.
cut aid to israel contingent to peace agreement.
U.S. economic aid to the Palestinians has averaged about $85 million per
year since 1993 http://fpc.state.gov/documents/organization/45198.pdf
The United States has transferred $200 million to the Palestinian government to help ease a growing budget deficit, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday.
Earlier this year, the Obama administration pledged $900 million in aid to the Palestinians, and the $200 million in budget support announced Friday are part of that sum. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/07/24/us-palestinian-aid-200-mi_n_244594.html
