New three-state solution for the Middle-East [Israel-Palestine] conflict

In our use of the phrase 'three-state solution', we are not describing the 'virtual' three-state circumstance that has existed since Hamas took Gaza from the Palestinian Authority [based in the West Bank] in 2007, leaving Israel as it was [before its further expansion into Palestine via settlement building]. We are also not describing anything that relates to the situation where Egypt absorbed Gaza and Jordan absorbed the West Bank [1949].

In our use of the phrase 'three-state solution', we are describing a situation that in truly literal terms, acknowledges and recognises both Gaza and the West Bank as separate independent sovereign states, with Hamas as the elected government of Gaza and the Palestinian Authority as the elected government of the West Bank.

Agreement from Israel is not required and the need for Hamas and the Palestinian Authority to form a unity government is removed meaning that UN recognition for both states can be granted immediately. In-turn, Israel will no longer be able to continue with its settlement building programme in Palestinian lands without being in violation of international laws regarding the protection of sovereignty. At present and although unlawful, Israel is able to continue to do this because it breaks no laws specifically regarding sovereignty and, it would also be helpful if Israeli concerns regarding its security [such as with the Golan Heights] were addressed in tandem [Israel argues that much of the land taken from Palestine under its settlement building programme is chosen for security reasons].

Hypothetically, Gaza could be renamed West Palestine and the West Bank could be renamed East Palestine and in our belief, true Palestinian unity is not possible anyway without either direct democracy or, a singular unified geographical land mass and, the people of each territory are not actually calling for either. With all of this in mind, there is not one single compromise that any relevant party has to concede and therefore, nothing for any party to object to.

This proposal aims to exploit the disadvantages by using them instead of trying to reverse them, so as to potentially make them of benefit to both parties [no party is pressured to unite with another] and, to Israel too [whose agreement will not be required].

Voting for direct democracy outside a general election

Direct Democracy - Audio

It is up to us, the people [not the politicians] to use the power that we have always had, to choose to implement direct democracy as soon as possible.

This is not a protest campaign.

In accordance with Magna Carta Article 61 and with UN UDHR Article 21 and with all of the democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK has signed-up to], the people already have the lawful right to reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.
