Middle East Peace Process: Game Over By Khaled M.Kh.S. Alnobani
The personal point of view of the peace process is very important because many times the delegates have responded as persons and not states.
A very important note: when time changes, things change too. A time has come when we were waiting for every article to read on the internet. Now we hardly see photos. We have lost our curiosity. It is not important anymore if we read more. The style of a writer is like a tree. One can tell what tree is this once he sees it. It is not needed most of the time to taste the fruit to tell if it is defected or not. All trees have leaves and branches. All of them have trunks. But there is no tree with the details of another.
The seen writing defects inside our home land are numerous.
Should we cry, sweeping our tears with our handkerchiefs because of what we see and hear? Or should we sit down gazing the maze with our eyes? Is this what we have learnt? Surely not - otherwise we now should have been in the middle of a bedlam. Most often we do not like to talk about the defects which we know. We hide them under our hard cover modes. Hatred and other hard feelings force them to appear.
We have the courage to identify and follow up things that are within our scope of vision. Sometimes we do not have the courage to write our memoires because of the defects we know. They are big, irrecoverable and unavoidable. They are past, a past which has never been present for us because of a lack of consciousness.
Creative anarchy has ended the state as a system (with control and feedback as aims). Instead the Middle East peace process stands alone. Like any other process it has inputs and outputs and also it has controls and resources. Things around have changed the details of controls and resources while the inputs are the same. The inputs were always Palestinian creative anarchy. One can tell this any time he analyzes the Israeli point of view. The initial output was a just and comprehensive solution but now it has ended any comprehensive solution. Eventually it will end any solution. The problem now is that Israel cannot converge to any solution that satisfies it, while Palestinians rely on the demographic Israeli dilemma for any solution.
Building settlements ended the peace process we used to know. It forced the dominance of Israeli opinion. With this fact time no longer goes back or freezes. This strategy is the magic which ended the peace process zero sum game.
The peace process began as a zero sum game. When the two opponents won the legitimacy of each other the zero sum game strategies ended for Israelis but not for Palestinians.
To earn scores Palestinians must change their strategies.
