23:25
Unsure
abraham Weizfeld PhD
26:58
Is this Constitution related to the draft Constitution made by Hans Kohn?
Rochelle Cleaver
28:12
If Isr, Pal and Hamas each have 1 vote, doesn't that give veto power to Pal people ans more power to them?
abraham Weizfeld PhD
29:16
HAMAS as announced its willingness to recognize 'Israel' if 'Israel' recognizes Palestine.
PAL Pres- Naseer
30:25
I think it will be better to ask more questions later. Let our quest speaker start since he has limited time.
Keith D Nunes

Please let's hear Prof. Dershowitz
PAL Pres- Naseer
32:51
When it come to questions, we should let those who raise their hands and wait to speak
Asher Lopatin
34:11
Time to move beyond the Peale commission! British did not always have the best plans for the Middle East!
Asher Lopatin
35:18
Really a shame to separate Jews and Arabs in Palestine - why not a Jewish and Palestinian state in the Holy Land?
Jack Risemberg
36:13
How many Christians are there, or are they mostly tourists?
abraham Weizfeld PhD
36:48
The problem with a One-State Solution is that the national identity of each is disregarded. Also One-State would guarantee a conflict between eqaully divided nationalities.
Asher Lopatin
37:00
The Holy Land can be the first state that gives off Friday, Saturday and Sunday! For all three religions.
abraham Weizfeld PhD
38:05
No, each nationality chooses its own practices with National-Cultural Autonomy as the Jewish Bund proposes.
Asher Lopatin
38:26
Israel (within Green Line) is somewhat a One State with Jews and Arabs as full citizens, but it needs to work harder on DEI for its Arab citizens - as America needs to do for the African America citizens of the US…
Asher Lopatin
39:18
As a Jew, I want a three day weekend! I need Saturday off, but would love to have Friday off to get ready, and Sunday off to do the things I can’t do on my holy day…
abraham Weizfeld PhD
39:46
Of course, all would support a 3-day weekend.

As a Jew I argued that we get Ramadan off in High School (secular and pubic). Didn't work.
Jack Risemberg
41:14
I cannot possibly imagine Israel given up it's military supremacy while engaged in six zones.

innovative service oriented capacities
Asher Lopatin
47:54
Canada - Quebec and the rest
Asher Lopatin
49:22
Israelis are European and Arab… and other - it’s already multiethnic and multi religious…
abraham Weizfeld PhD
49:52
Israelis are not Europeans but rather both Arab and European.
abraham Weizfeld PhD
50:16
That is to say the Jewish Israelis are both Arab and European.
PAL Pres- Naseer
50:37
My follow up was going to be about why do they only apply the restrictions because it focuses on Palestinian extremists, with no regards to Israeli extremist who I see as armed and more dangerous.
Asher Lopatin
51:05
Yes - Jewish Arabs, Muslim Arabs, Jewish Europeans, Jewish Asians, Jewish Africans…
Jack Risemberg
51:21
Perhaps in addition to the constitution there ought to be something along the lines of the Bill of Rights in the US.
Asher Lopatin
52:11
No one has total separation of church and state. In America, Sunday is a day of rest, Christmas is a national holiday, not Chanuka or Ramadan…
Asher Lopatin
52:25
England - Queen is the head of the Church of England…
abraham Weizfeld PhD
52:55
Confederation is the unity of territorial Nation-States while a Federation unites non-territorial nationalities..
Asher Lopatin
54:12
Israel finally has an Arab party in the ruling coalition, and it is a Muslim fundamentalist party!
Jack Risemberg
54:17
True, I recently found out after years of practice that I did not get an extra day for Yom Kippur (at my previous firm the staff headed that off). I had to work the entire holiday as a solo practitioner and was not happy about it. You only get an extra day if you are Christrian. Jews Muslims and everyone else gets a little bit of leeway, but definitely less.
Fauzi MANTOURA
54:49
I have a question please FAUZI
Asher Lopatin
55:46
Our JCRC is working with Muslims, Christians and Hindus in America to get religious accommodation in Michigan Universities… (sorry for the plug…)
abraham Weizfeld PhD
57:54
My question time was overlooked!!!!
PAL Pres- Naseer
59:03
Sid, you raise your hand
Asher Lopatin
01:06:29
Great answer. Agreed. Let’s not question our sense of belonging.
Asher Lopatin
01:06:40
Well said Mr. Dershowitz.
Asher Lopatin
01:08:33
Thanks so much Mr. Dershowitz!!
PAL Pres- Naseer
01:09:55
Ca people lower their hands if they do not have a questions
Avrum Ehrlich
01:10:12
so many questions
karameh kuemmerle
01:10:32
Veto power re everything? This might make things halt
Warda Sada Is-Palestinian
01:11:00
Thank you Josef and all the contributors. I have to go out because I am I another zoom
Warda Sada Is-Palestinian
01:11:29
as always its interesting
Avrum Ehrlich
01:11:32
this forum must excel in rigorous concensus making with a communication app that includes many views while vying for solutions
Avrum Ehrlich
01:12:35
any future governance must practice hi tech and nuanced discussion and voting
Avrum Ehrlich
01:15:47
working together to develop a shared vision for the region requires a vision of individual service oriented governance
PAL Pres- Naseer
01:16:00
We vote on this every time, we need some new proposals to vote on
Aymen Zaben
01:16:53
In short, the confederation is a third government that brings both sides together to propose and vote on legislations that involve both sides. The confederation is not a “super government” nor does it get involved in the internal affairs of each government. The IPC is simply a joint government that works to resolve issues that effect both sides.
Avrum Ehrlich
01:17:45
it's avoids any subject the existing entities are engaged in and out deals with cooperation between responsible entities
esther robbins
01:30:13
you are absolutely right
Sean Zaher
01:30:31
I agree with josef
Jack Risemberg
01:36:11
Wasn't most of the land purchased from Jordanians?
PAL Pres- Naseer
01:36:20
no
esther robbins
01:39:20
When talking about return to Palestine, are you talking about Palestine or Israel ? Unfortunately, original homes don exist just as homes of many jews, so compansations are a good option
Jack Risemberg
01:40:07
Who holds title?
esther robbins
01:41:00
Jack, are you asking me ?
syed Danish
01:41:02
Israelis are asking for naqbah2
Jack Risemberg
01:41:39
Anyone who cares to answer. Certainly to welcome your input.
Avrum Ehrlich
01:41:50
the voting mechanism presented here is not realiabe enough to vote
syed Danish
01:42:03
agreed
Avrum Ehrlich
01:42:11
yes
esther robbins
01:45:35
so far, only Joseph came up with a practical solution
Jack Risemberg
01:46:39
I think we should make very clear which simulated parliament sides are voting. My first meeting, I inadvertantly voted for the wrong side a couple of times.
PAL Pres- Naseer
01:51:51
Good day or evening everyone. See you next time.
esther robbins
01:53:10
it should be presented to Beiden, Israeli and Palestinian leaders
Avrum Ehrlich
01:53:26
group administration apps
Irena Varjabedian
01:53:32
I joined late. Was Alan Dershowitch participate?
Irena Varjabedian
01:54:31
He called the settlers facists.
Co-Host Dan
01:54:34
Yes, we recorded so you can see it online later
Irena Varjabedian
01:55:04
how can I get the link of the recording?
Co-Host Dan
01:55:20
It will be on the IPC website
Ilan Bass 白義蘭
01:56:18
Israel already has one of the strongest armies in the region, so that’s just empty rhetoric. More focus on conflict resolution and peacebuilding required.
karameh kuemmerle
01:57:08
We have to learn to live together and understand each other’s issues.
Ilan Bass 白義蘭
01:57:42
I have to leave, but this has been another interesting discussion. Many thanks to Josef and everyone present.
esther robbins
01:58:08
Thanks
Nerina Cecchin
01:58:14
Thank you.
Ilan Bass 白義蘭
01:58:16
Take care everyone
