What George Mitchell and Obama Need to Know About the Middle East
The International Institute of Nonviolence
By: Rev. Jermano
George Mitchell and President Obama need to know the reality in the Middle East in order to achieve the goals of Peace in the Region. Just trying to achieve Peace between Israel and Palestine without looking at the entire region...is like putting new wine in old wine pouches.
The issue is Iran . The only reason Iran has a hostility to Israel...is because of Israels hostility to Iran... I think Iran will be very supportive of the process, but this whole thing is revolving around the power struggle which still captivates them in the Middle East. We are talking about balancing the Atomic Bomb power of nations.
All of the Middle Eastern Countries except Israel are without a military deterrent. George Mitchell must be aware of this. No it is more than Palestines Statehood at stake.....it is about real security in the Middle East.....and that does not include the US....who supports Israel..with its Atomic Aplomb....
Why should Israel hold such power over all the Middle East? If they want Iran to stop its nuclear program....shouldn't Israel also follow in step by dismantling too? If not then Iran has a right to have its nuclear capacity....
George Mitchell and President Obama must realize they will get no where in the Israeli and Palestinian peace talks without working out the nuclear issue in the Middle East. This is real stuff.
Think about all the rich oil resource countries in the middle east and they have no nuclear deterrent from Superpowers who have no Oil resources. They saw what happened to Iraq...they are going to be pursuing their own bomb.....or to agree to keep the Middle East nuclear free.....which means Israel must step up to the plate and dismantle its French made hard water facility.
Once that issue is resolved there is more of a chance for peace to be realized with Israel and Palestine. Israel must discuss its reasons for keeping Palestinains and Arabs out of their Democracy. They must determine what kind of Democracy they have? Democracy is not known to exclude people in its real definition.....but the Israelis fear they will loose Democratic control of Israel....so they follow this type of Apartheid Democracy for Israel.
Just what is Israel? Whereas Hamas has a real Democracy... I have not heard it will exclude Jews from living in Palestine....although the topic may not have been mentioned...certainly Jews probably fear more to live in Palestine, than Palestinians living in Israel.
If they agree to a two State solution.....is that really a solution? A real solution would be to return lands and stop occupying right? And what about the issue of changing swords for jobs? There can not be co-existence without work and jobs being created...to support their new States. I have an idea to build manmade land off the coast of Israel...for both Palestinians and Israeli's as a project of Peace for them. This would be bigger than the creation of the Egyptian Pyramids...........Because it will mean so much more....because of it being the symbol and effort of work for the peoples both Israelis and Palestinianst to achieve peace there.
Obama I am certain has no clue to the issues I have mentioned....because the Mainstream Media does not mention any of this......except innuendo's about a two State solution. There are real issues that need to be addressed.....to bring sight and vision to the future to end this protracted 60 years + of blindness.
