Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 130

Note 1: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains months-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

There are two viable solutions for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, short of exterminating one party or most probably both, that has been spreading death, disabilities, miseries, indignities and humiliation since 1920.

From a psychological necessity, a Palestinian State will make them feel that persistent resistance and countless “martyrs” for re-establishing their rights as legitimate and independent people have brought fruits, as any genuine national resistance ultimately should.

It would be inevitable that the Palestinian State be guaranteed a neutrality status (no preemptive wars within and outside its borders) by the world community and the regional powers (Like in Switzerland?).

Mago of Carthage wrote the masterful 28 volumes on agricultureTreatise on Agriculture” and considered by the Romans as the “Father of Agriculture”

Pythagoras’ mother was Phoenician and she sailed from the island of Samus to Lebanon Afka Temple in order for her son to receive the lustral consecration (baptized according to the rite that is still performed in Lebanon).

Pour briser les moules, il faut d’abord les connaitre. On apprend toujours les methodes conventionelles: c’est l’ecole.

L’effet tunnel: Voir le monde a travers une longue-vue, se trouver a l’exterieur des choses et la vie. Ca s’appelle l’ angoissse, le stress.

Around the world, a growing body of evidence is showing that people with lower levels of stress and higher levels of mental well-being are more creative, more productive and take less time off work.

White males coping with financially difficult times (the poorer classes) view firearms as “morally and emotionally restorative” to society’s problems.

My second impression of the USA is that the citizen projects an attitude of positive happiness to life; he smiles, he is friendly, and he is conscious of his value. (Einstein as he landed in the late 40’s)

The Europeans demonstrate critical minds and absence of generosity and compassion. The European asks a lot from his entertainments and readings. (Einstein as he landed in the late 40’s)

So far, Iranian mullahs have been consistent in safeguarding the territorial integrity in the Middle-East. Saudi Kingdom has been consistent in the last 90 years of executing the plans of the power of Evils (US expansionist policies, Israel apartheid regime and extremist religious sects)).

Jon Stewart: “A terrible place, even if you don’t live there. Democracy in the Middle East is so hard. Maybe we shouldn’t have done it Second Amendment first.”

Jon Stewart mocks US peace efforts as we sell weapons and disrupt all sides

Jon Stewart makes a very sad observation about the Middle East that while done comically, is very serious.

After watching the video it’s hard to believe that our involvement have been a net positive for the stability of the region.

“The Middle East, this is terribly upsetting,” Jon Stewart said.  “It remains in turmoil. This is a dangerous region. Even for people who don’t live there and say merely express the mildest of concern about the humanitarian tragedy of civilians who have nothing to do with the warring factions, only to take rat shit from everyone who went to your bar mitzvah.”

It is evident that Jon Stewart is not taking kindly to the recent attacks on him from both the Right and the Left for examining the inability to question Israeli actions and taking a moral stance on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

In this schooling Jon Stewart demonstrates the hypocrisy of America’s involvement in the Middle East.

America pushed for democracy in the region. When democracy elected the wrong leaders in Palestine, Egypt, and other places, America was not so happy for democracy.

America provided millions to prosperous Israel for its missile defense system, Iron Dome.

And while needy Americans cannot get funding for programs to help build its middle class, politicians are attempting to add $225 million to the Border Bill for Israeli missile defense. Priorities anyone?

America’s arms dealing is worse.

It turns out the United States sells arms to all the characters in the region directly or indirectly. The arms that went to Syria may ultimately end up in the hands of ISIS. American arms in Afghanistan are likely falling into the hands of the Taliban. Qatar funds Hamas even as we sell them $11 billion in arms. “Are you re-gifting,” Jon Stewart asked.

It is hard not to be cynical about America’s fervor for military involvement.

It is hard not to see a defense industrial complex’s propensity to influence politicians on taking military stances for their profit.

“Democracy in the Middle East is so hard,” Jon Stewart said. “Maybe we shouldn’t have done it Second Amendment first.”

The State of Palesrael: a future plausible resolution (November 12, 2008)

There are reams and reams of plans and counter plans and resolution suggested to containing this everlasting unjust and uncalled for reality of the 20th century monstrosity that permitted the establishment of the State of Israel by displacing its original inhabitants (the Palestinians), as so many monstrosities in this century.

There are two viable solutions for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, short of exterminating one party or the other or most probably both, that has been spreading death, disabilities, miseries, indignities and humiliation since 1920.

The Israeli Olmert PM has lately declared that the time to facing truth has come.

Since the Madrid convention in 1990 among the Arab and Israeli delegations and mediated by the US Administration, during the tenure of Bush Sr. for a resolution of this conflict, it was becoming evident that the “Biblical” strategy of Israel, for further expansion and preemptive wars, is no longer tenable.

A resolution was contemplated but the US had an old battle plan to invade Iraq before resolving this conflict.

The Bush Jr. “Son” administration dusted off this war plan and invaded Iraq. This invasion has failed miserably but Israel is no longer necessary for the strategic interest of the US in the Middle East:  The US has military bases in the Arab Gulf, it has many heavy weight allies among the Arabic States, and the price of oil on the market is far cheaper than physically securing its exploitation and distribution in Iraq or elsewhere or even resuming plans to intimidating China and blackmailing her by outdated military presence in Iraq.

The return of the heavy investments of the US in Israel has been reflecting sharp negative rates for decades, politically, economically, and socially within the US society and foreign policies.

My plan is of two phases:

1. The first phase is recognizing the State of Palestine by the United Nation, a State self-autonomous, independent and all.  It is of primordial interest by the world community and the Jewish State that the Palestinian people recover their dignity and rights as a full fledge State and be permitted to exercise the complex task of administering and governing a State.

At least from a psychological necessity, the Palestinian people should feel that persistent resistance and countless “martyrs” for re-establishing their rights as legitimate and independent people have brought fruits, as any genuine national resistance ultimately should.

2. The second phase is the merging of the two States of Palestine and Israel into a confederate State with a central government and several self-autonomous “cantons”.

I can envisage the following cantons: West Bank, Gaza (including Escalon), Galilee (including Haifa and Akka), Judea (around Jerusalem and Bethlehem), the “East Shore” (Tel Aviv, Yafa), and the Negev (including Akaba).

I have this impression that the tight religious extremists on both sides would opt to move to Gaza and Judea, and the very secular citizens would move to the East Shore or Galilee and the economically minded people might reside in the Negev backed by strong financial incentives.

The second phase will witness the return of the Palestinian refugees as ordered by the UN resolution of 193 in 1948 and the refugees would have the right to select the canton of their preferences.

I can foresee that the key offices in the central government would be equitably distributed, including genders, shared by the Palestinians and Israelis and a rotation of key positions imposed.

The representation in the cantons would be proportional to the general census of the period (at 5 years intervals).  The representation among sects, factions, or other types of social divisions within each “people” would also follow the proportions in the census.

I suggest to the interest of the future “Palesrael” State that Israel let Lebanon experience without foreign interventions the full extent of its caste structure so that the State of Palesrael might study the pitfalls and strength of such a system of co-existence and avoid the unnecessary miseries of minor civil wars and countless frustrations in its future unfolding.

It would be inevitable that the State of “Palesreal” be guaranteed a neutrality status (no preemptive wars within and outside its borders) by the world community and the regional powers.

Then, it is hoped and strongly desired that the State of Lebanon would secure the same neutrality status.  Amen.

Note: John Kerry, State Department chief, has been shuffling between Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas since 2013, trying to find a resolution to the Palestinian problem.

So far, Kerry failed. Israel has been building more settlements than ever before, annexing Jerusalem to become totally Jewish, and demanding that the Palestinians and the Arab leaders agree that Israel is a pure Jewish State.
