Ahlam Muhtaseb
13:46
I am an anti-Zionist and I don’t believe in Israel’s existence as an exclusive Jewish State, especially on my homeland. Please take me out of your email list.

Not sure why you cannot hear me, issue with sound technology... I would like to ask the question here, instead, okay? My question is once the IPC is operational not only online but in real life, where would the offices of the IPC, meaning where would it be governing, physically standing (the building) where the IPC government exists? What town? Location? And where is the government of Hamas and the Government of Palestine?
IS/PA: Todd
42:49
no
IS Barry Werner
53:02
No, in every district, there will be different voters who will vote for IPC and for their own governments
PA-Giacomo Valentini
55:24
An elected IPC parliament would probably behave like the European Parliament: EP members come from all EU countries but do not vote along national lines
PA-Giacomo Valentini
56:54
IPC parliament members would have allegiance primarily to the IPC, above the national interests of Israel, Palestine or any other entity.
IS/PA: Todd
58:04
no
PA. Asim Altamimi
01:04:27
In Islam, Muslims believe that all land is owned by God. People are appointed by God as caretakers of the land.
PA Leader Letty Cottin Pogrebin
01:05:39
Same for Torah-believing Jews, Asim.
IS PM Naseer
01:11:47
The Palestinian leader in the confederation should be one.
IS PM Naseer
01:11:58
I hope we can fix this now
IS PM Naseer
01:12:54
Hamas should be considered a political party within the PA
PA-Giacomo Valentini
01:14:56
Veto power means that the only way for the IPC to pass legislation is for it to be widely accepted by all sides
PA. Asim Altamimi
01:14:56
Dr’s apt. See you all next meeting.
IS_charlesfredricks
01:16:59
I think people are having a hard time conceiving the idea of this separate parliament existing in the current political context where the existing governments hold political and military power. This is a soft power approach.
PA-Giacomo Valentini
01:19:03
Veto power by both PA and Hamas is necessary. It is a voluntary choice by the IPC
PA Nerina Cecchin
01:19:43
Recognition of both is crucial
IS_charlesfredricks
01:20:10
The current fact is that, regardless their legitimacy, Hamas, PA and Is govt have political control and the IPC’s method of accommodation in order to avoid persecution if for no other reason is to recognize their authority.
IS PM Naseer
01:22:57
Yes! Lol
IS/PA: Todd
01:28:26
job creation(s)!
IS PM Naseer
01:31:39
In spirit of the International Olympics, we should have proposed a joint team at the Olympics.
Hamas Leader Libby Traubman
01:37:21
Would the Orthodox Jews agree all religions are equal?
IS - Phil Saunders
01:38:36
Good question Libby, yes that could be a problem too
IS PM Naseer
01:41:01
100% Mohamed!
IS PM Naseer
01:41:22
They are not a religious movement.
PA Leader Letty Cottin Pogrebin
01:42:50
As Mohamed just said, the extreme factions of oppositional religions often find common ground, for instance in the arena of modesty rules — and whether their religion is the only true religion.
IS PM Naseer
01:43:49
I think the guest should speak about the religious groups that pose a threat to any peace process that he mentions. Especially since this is his expertise.
Josef Avesar
01:44:59
If the IPC elections took place and 5 million people voted , that by itself would be a game changer event.
Hamas Leader Libby Traubman
01:47:46
When Hamas was elected years ago, we promised to support that election result. But when they won, we did not support them and posed them as enemies. Perhaps it is time to show them "respect", invite them to the table as an equal. That could change their methods and motivation.
IS/PA: Todd
01:48:20
Neutrality??
Hamas Leader Libby Traubman
01:49:50
Our planet is on fire and survival is threatened at a level we can't imagine, so NOW is the time for all of us to cooperate for the good of all.
IS - Phil Saunders
01:49:50
I recall that when Hamas won the election, the international community set out three demands for them to be granted legitimacy. Hamas was not able to agree to all of those demands. We might debate in retrospect whether those demands were reasonable or not
IS/PA: Todd
01:49:58
Many tribes, cohessive as one!
IS - Phil Saunders
01:51:54
Yes Todd, many tribes, coexisting in harmony, that's the vision
IS_charlesfredricks
01:53:46
Sorry everyone, great discussion, I have to go to Dr appt. Thanks to our guest. Would like to discuss these issues with you further.
IS PM Naseer
01:55:17
I do have one
Hamas Leader Libby Traubman
02:01:00
An enemy is one whose story you have not heard!
IS PM Naseer
02:01:16
These people are also manipulated by the people in power to perpetuate the problem which serves there purpose.
IS/PA: Todd
02:03:56
The younger generation(s) need achievable, Hope!
IS/PA: Todd
02:04:44
As well as the older generations.
PA Leader Letty Cottin Pogrebin
02:05:58
Sorry I must leave. Thank you for this fascinating session.
PA-Giacomo Valentini
02:06:17
Great debate, thank you all.
Hamas Leader Libby Traubman
02:08:16
Good meeting and new insights. I have another meeting to attend. Thank you all.
IS/PA: Todd
02:11:19
Bye for now!
PA Nerina Cecchin
02:11:36
Thank You. Great initiative.
