Transcript of Israeli-Palestinian Conflict/PeacePlan

Palestinian-Israeli Conflict and Peace Plan By: Victor Xia, Lars Flores,
and Liam Narendorf Historian: Liam Narendorf
Impact Investigator: Victor Xia
Adviser: Lars Flores CAST Impacts on the government and imports Since the Jews had successfully made Israel, there had been about 5 major wars along with continuous terrorist attacks. As these wars proved to be deadly, they had an immediate affect on the Government's procedures and structure. Because of this, the Country and the people's safety became a major priority for the government. In addition, the constant warfare caused some concern among Israel's government about the ability to produce a prepared military force with adequate personnel. Many imports from Israel were anti-air technology built to destroy any hostile aircraft and defensive missile systems built specifically to intercept incoming rockets from other countries and destroy them. Furthermore, Israel's Parliament had taken action by presenting law and agreements to defend against the Palestinian enemies. In 1964, the Palestinians created an organization called the PLO. The Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) was a corporation of many people who settled to dedicate their life to help advance the goal of creating a Palestinian homeland. The terrorist attacks brought out a bad reputation for the Palestinians along with the Fatah, a military organization working toward establishing a Palestinian state. The policies of the two governments plus the established groups is one of the many reasons why both sides can't come into an agreement. PLO logo Fatah Flag Jews to Arabs

As you will see, the number of Palestinians dying compared to the amount of Israelis dying is a considerably large difference.

(ratio) Impacts on American People In the Israeli/Palestinian Conflict, America has been giving Israel unquestioned support, leading many Palestinians to call it "Americael". The involvement and approval of Israel is complicating the future for the U.S. presence in the region and is not serving the interests of the American people. Impacts on Israel's International Trade Other than tourism, Israel's sector of international trade has also experienced great effects because of the conflict. In the first forty years of its independence, Israel was economically isolated in the Middle East because of the problems that it caused for the Arab world and the Palestinian people. Basically almost every Arab country in the Middle East refused to accept Israel's creation refused to trade with its new neighbor country. Israel was forced to make economical and trade bonds with countries outside the middle east in order to survive. As the trade agreements developed over decades, Israel had successfully found many trade allies including the United States, Ukraine, Turkey, India, Australia, Canada, and China. The countries relies heavily on trade, and its many trading partners allowed the economy of Israel to grow over time through revenue from exports. Although it was at first isolated from the economy of the world, Israel overcame this obstacle to become more involved in the international economy than any of its neighboring Arab countries. Who was affected most? (Arabs or Israeli's?)
(Victor's own opinion) In my opinion, Arabs or Palestinians were affected the most due to the fact that MORE Palestinians were killed in the ongoing conflict. Even though the Palestinians were the ones that declined a peaceful negotiation of land, they still got affected the most. Their land is now much smaller than the land negotiation offered. When the Australia Labor Party heard about this, they sided up with Israel. Furthermore, Israel had already had economical and trading bonds with international countries including the America because their neighboring Arabian countries didn't accept Israel as a country. With the combined forces of Israel and other countries, they caused a lot more Palestinians to die making Palestinians or Arabs most affected. The effects of America helping Israel proved to be unfortunate for Palestinians. The many ways that Palestinians in the Israel-region have suffered are included in Sara Roy's description of life in Gaza, who reported the results of a survey conducted by the Gaza Community Mental Health Program. The survey was of 3,000 children ages 8-15. Here is the survey results: In the survey:
93% of these children had been tear gassed
85% had had their homes raided
55% had witnessed their fathers beaten
42% had been beaten themselves
31% had been shot
28% had had a brother imprisoned
19% had been detained
3% had suffered a death in the family
69% had been exposed to more than 4 types of trauma P.S. Victor is an asian among asians Previous failed peace plans One Jewish State - The early Zionists envisioned a single Jewish state that would encompass all of the land from beyond the Jordan river to the sea, as well as Gaza and parts of what is now Lebanon. The single Jewish state plan was abandoned by most Zionists when it became apparent that the Jews could not be a decisive majority in all of Palestine. Today, settlers and right wing Zionists propose various single state solutions that all seek to maintain a Jewish majority in the land, either by expelling Palestinians or by denying or abridging their political rights. Early Jewish hope (Zionism) Arab states and Palestinian leaders called for a single Palestinian Arab state in Palestine. This "plan" has been put forward from time to time with different variants. All of them would put an end to Zionism and would not allow free Jewish immigration to Israel. After WW II The Palestinian leader Haj Amin el Husseini, told the British that the Jewish problem in Palestine should be solved in the same was as it had been "solved" by Hitler in Europe (by murdering the Jews). In 1967, on the eve of the 6-day war, Ahmed Shokhairy, then head of the PLO, spoke at UN, giving the Palestinian one-state solution. He explained that "if it will be our privilege to strike the first blow," the PLO would exile from Israel all Zionists who arrived after 1917 and create a "secular democratic state. This secular democratic state became the program of the Palestine Liberation Organization and of the Fatah which sought to "liberate" Palestine from the Zionists by armed struggle. The Hamas and Islamic Jihad prefer an Islamic state, in which Jews and other religious minorities can remain as dhimmis (second class citizens). One arab state Summary So Finally, Our peace plan Advantages of the Plan The following plan presented to you is what will end the conflict. Simply put, both sides will not stop fighting until the other side gives up, and both believe the other side will not and cannot do that. Therefore they form the situation in such a way with their own flawed thinking that it seems like neither side wants peace at all. In the conflict, on of the main problems was the ongoing wars and constant terrorist attacks. One of the main effects was, many innocent children and babies were harmed. How did the Conflict affect other countries? The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has gotten many countries involved such as neighboring countries and other major countries like the U.S. Numerous countries in the Middle East are commonly involved with the conflict. These countries spend money to hold meetings, assemble ideas, or propose peace. Many of the meeting held are to try to offer peace, but none of the offers are taken due to the thought that both sides think that opposing side will not stop fighting until the other side gives up. They both think that the other "side" will and cannot give up. Basically, each side believes that the other side doesn't really even want peace, causing more violence. This affects the countries spending money to propose peace plans because most of the peace plans won't get agreed on making the proposers "waste" their money. Israeli Security fence The Israel security fence was built mainly for protecting citizens of Israel from Palestinian suicide bombers or terrorist. Before construction of the wall, a terrorist needed only to get past an invisible line (a border) to get from the West Bank into Israel. Many Palestinian terrorists carried out 73 attacks in which 293 Israelis were killed and 1950 were wounded. Following that, they put up the security fence to save Israelis. This how significant the amount
of deaths changed after the fence was built. Pictures of kids affected by the conflict First Things First 9-year-old Israeli boy Osher Twito lost his leg after a Palestinian Qassam rocket exploded next to him in the city of Sderot We would start by having the member countries of the UN place an embargo on the warring countries and all other countries who give support them. This economic pressure and peace talk invitations would hopefully make the countries start considering stopping their war. After they make peace (THEY WILL), the UN will take off the embargo. An Israeli child wounded by a Hamas Grad rocket fired on the city of Beer Sheva is taken to a hospital The Next Phase This image is and image showing a child dressed for suicide bombing. Many have seen the images of infants and toddlers dressed in mock suicide bomber outfits in Palestine, and while they may not commit such acts when they grow-up, their fate is one undoubtedly leaning towards violence. Many children are being taught the ways of suicide bombing in religious schools, others by their parents or other relatives. Many children have been manipulated and their minds and bodies have been enslaved the terror that is placed upon them over and over by those who see vengeance as a tool which wins battles. Pictures This image is of a man wanting
peace. After Palestinian militants barraged Israel with more than 200 rockets, Israel pressed a punishing campaign of airstrikes on militant targets across the Gaza Strip. Three rockets targeted the densely populated Tel Aviv area, setting off air raid sirens in brazen attacks that threatened to trigger an Israeli ground invasion of Gaza. If the sides decide on peace, we would then present an idea for an organization that would unite Israel and the Palestinian countries into one country. If the citizens of Palestine and Israel don't agree with the one country proposal, there is an optional proposal of splitting Israel/Palestine (evenly as possible!) in half having Jerusalem as the central-neutral zone. Final last resort all-else-fails step If all other attempts at peace fail, we would help the opposing factions rip each other to shreds and then clean up the mess after they either almost completely wipe themselves out or they stop because of the horror of the things they have done (basically, we would let them nearly extinguish themselves from the face of the Earth). Allon Plan Credits This plan would have Israel control the Jordan Valley in order to control the West Bank military. Most of this area is desert and is not settled by Palestinians or used by them. However, the plan would control Palestinian access to Jordan and would create several separate enclaves. The Jordan river would remain the eastern border of Israel, allowing Israel to prevent foreign armies from crossing into the West Bank and massing for an attack on the center of Israel. Israel would annex areas in the Jerusalem corridor to secure the approaches to Jerusalem. Palestinians would be given control of three populous enclaves-northern enclave, a southern enclave, and an enclave including Jericho that included a crossing to Jordan. Disadvantages of the plan it would solve the conflict eventually
the economic and emotional pressure that would be put upon them is nearly guaranteed to make peace.
it is a reasonable, fair plan
it could solve almost all of the disputes among the two races
the embargo will most likely cause the Jews to accept the proposal due to the economic and emotional pressure. If we just offered a land split, Israel would most likely decline because they already have most of the land. Also, when a land proposal in 1947 was made, the Palestinians declined, so this would be a way for the Jews to get revenge. The embargo will get the Jews to agree. there is a possibility of millions of lives to be lost
we could end up globally hated
it has the chance of failing (like any other plan)
there is the slightest possibility that the plan (embargo) wouldn't be supported by the UN http://www.mideastweb.org

www.googleimages.com Three-State Solution Also called the Egyptian-Jordanian Solution, this concept specifies that the Gaza strip would return to Egypt while the West Bank is given back to Jordan. Beginning in 1949, Egypt occupied the Gaza Strip and Jordan occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem. By putting this into effect, this means the events are just repeating since they originally did own the land. Many specialists have dismissed this approach, however others have supported it. Nowadays, this plan is becoming more and more accepted and discussed, but some still are unsure whether to repeat the historical events or leaving it be. Allon Plan Yigal Alon, an Israeli general and political leader, who it was named after, composed an arrangement for a dispersion of the West Bank with part of the land to be returned to Jordan making this a possible solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In 1967-1977, Israeli Labor Governments established 21 colonizations alongside the Jordan Valley and slopes East of Samaria to follow the notions of the plan. This was also known as the "no state solution," it's main cause to carry out changes to boundaries of the West bank so part of Israel's security necessities would be met. Binational State This idea was brought up by Dr. Yehuda Magnes, who's in a department of legislation. In a binational state, it specifies it would have Jewish and Arab cantons, a division of a state. At the Anglo-American Commission in 1946, the idea was presented being favored by some. However, the idea lost aid later when both the Arab states and Palestinian leader rejected it, leaving the proposal with a few present-day supporters. Historic Zionists saw a future with a single Jewish state in which made up most of Israel. The plan was then abandonned when they realized that there wasn't a great amount of support of Jews over Arabs. Currently, some Zionists are searching for some type of method or solution that would give the Jewish a majority of the land, usually by casting out Palestinians or by contradicting or reducing their political rights.

(Zionism- Movement in the 19th century that had a goal of creating a single Jewish state in Israel) One Jewish State Arab Peace Initiative In March 2002, the plan was proposed. Israel was to withdraw from the Arab territories and accept the establishment of the independent Palestinian state. In return, the Arab states was to consider the Arab-Israeli conflict over and achieve peace and establish a normal relation with Israel. Although the Palestinians, supported the plan, the Israelis rejected it. As a result, the plan didn't take action. The reason why all other peace plans didn't work pt.2 The reason for all the Other Peace Plans Failing One of the reasons is that too many people on both sides think that all of the land belongs only to them and to no-one else, and that the continued presence of the other side on the land is illegitimate and a historic injustice. The second problem is that outside forces, especially in the Arab and Muslim world, have taken care to stir up and maintain this conviction and to arm those who will fight for it. As long as terrorist groups and the regimes that encourage them exist, they will try to sabotage any hope of peace, regardless of the terms. No plan can succeed until these problems are solved. The plans proposed do meet reasonable standards, but the people on both sides think that all the land belongs to them leading to a LARGE dispute causing many plans not to work. It isn't exactly the plan itself that isn't reasonable enough for peace, but it is the people that think that all of the land belongs only to them and to no-one else, and that the continued presence of the other side on the land is illegitimate who prevent the two from having peace.

(1914-2005) IM REALLY TIRED NOW IM GONAA WORK TILL TWELVE!!! Why It Will Work Our peace plan WILL work because the economic and emotional pressure is a great way to make the Jews accept the plan. The Palestinians will accept the plan almost automatically because they have a small portion of land and a even split will give them more land. Normally, the Jews would decline the plan of a split because they have most of the land already. The embargo would (basically) force the Jews to accept the plan. If Jews don't accept the plan, then their economy would (obviously) worsen drastically, and both races would nearly become extinct. This is why the Israelis are sure to accept and put our plan into action.
