Solving the Arab-Israeli Conflict

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone:

Please allow me to announce that 'Solving the Arab-Israeli Conflict' is now available on Amazon Kindle. For your information, it is perhaps the first time that an attempt was made to resolve the underlying religious issues that have prevented both sides from negotiating a peace agreement in good faith.

Over the past 40 years, proposals to end the Arab-Israeli conflict have generally specified the following two pre-conditions.

1. The Islamic nations must recognize Israel’s right to exist in peace in the region.

2. Israel must return the Gaza and West Bank areas.

These pre-conditions appear to conflict with the following aspects of Islamic and Jewish religious traditions.

1. Mohammed’s final command that only one religion must occupy the Arabian Peninsula; therefore, the Jews must leave.

2. Moses’ final command that the Israelites must occupy the Promised land, which includes Gaza and the West Bank; therefore, the Arabs must leave.

Previous proposals have largely ignored these religious traditions and have sought to apply political solutions to the symptoms of these religious issues. Islamic and Jewish political leaders are well aware that accepting their pre-condition would violate critical aspects of their respective religious traditions. Therefore, both sides appear to have negotiated in bad-faith in order to avoid the fatal consequences of making unpopular decisions.

Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin are reported to have been assassinated, because they were the first national leaders to formally accept the pre-conditions. Until the religious issues are resolved, the Jewish and Islamic political leaders are essentially being forced to negotiate a compromise solution in bad-faith, because they are well aware that their respective populations will never agree to the negotiated terms.

'Solving the Arab-Israeli Conflict’ by Walter Phillips proposes a workable solution to the conflict that resolves the religious issues and proposes an equitable political solution. I am willing to discuss the matter here.

Regards,

Walter Phillips, Author
