Try A Long Squeeze

Reader comment on item: Solving the "Palestinian Problem" [with the No-State Solution]

Submitted by Frank Adam (United Kingdom), Aug 17, 2009 at 06:33

*First transfer the UNWRA schools clinics to the municipalities, and then the funds and welfare offices to the PA so that the PA has to consider consequences of its own policies and violent irresponsibilities.

*This will also diminish the brazen attempt to make "refugee" into an hereditary and permanent status which is against all precedent and, "Careers for talents only," doctrines of the last two centuries which have worked consistently against hereditary public office.

*Then the US, €U and other funders of UNWRA should progressively cut 20% a year from their contributions to oblige the oil sheikhs to take up their Arab brothers obligations of inter-Arab solidarity and restrain the ideologues of violence. This might also make the Arab propensity for playing the ends against the middle politics less attractive.

*Hope the oil (dependencey ) era closes faster than expected - "peak oil" arrives by 20200 at latest - so pressuring the funders to oblige the Palestine Arabs to go in for education and migration to more constructive lives elsewhere in the (Arab) World.
