AUGUST 2013 FOOTNOTE  TO THIS VIDEO BY CFG’S LAWRENCE FEINER:

The Israeli Election and the Two State Solution

For some reason, my video on the Israeli election and the two-state solution was truncated. This update is a brief description of what was in the video.

Even though the newly elected Israeli government is more moderate (61 rightist Knesset members, 59 centrist and leftist Knesset members) than the previous Israeli government, there are three major impediments to a two-state solution.  (1) West Bank Jewish settlers, (2) Jerusalem, (3) The right of the Palestinian refugees of the ’48 war to return to their homes in Israel.

There are currently 513,000 Jewish settlers in the West Bank. It is difficult to imagine Israel withdrawing them or allowing them to live under Palestinian control. In 1989,  when there were far fewer settlers than there are today, the noted Israeli political scientist, Meron Benvenisti, maintained that there were too many settlers to make a Palestinian state viable, and that, therefore, the only solution to the conflict, which wasn’t an apartheid Bantustan,  was a binational, democratic state where Jews and Arabs had equal rights.

In 1983, the PLO rep to Lebanon, Shafiq Al-Hout gave a Q and A at the UN Church Center. He was asked whether a viable Palestinian state was possible. He answered “Well you know. It’s a dream I share with my dog at the fireplace”.

As far as Jerusalem is concerned, during the Camp David negotiations in 2000, even a leftist like Shimon Peres would not agree to a divided Jerusalem.

During the Camp David negotiations, the main obstacle to a settlement, was the Palestinian inability to drop the right of return. The Israelis wanted the Palestinians to drop the right of return as a precondition for a settlement, and the Israelis also a wanted to postpone Jerusalem to a later date. The Palestinians, on the other hand, wanted to postpone the right of return, (the Arabs was getting tired of supporting the right of return) and negotiate Jerusalem (for which the Palestinians had the support of the entire Muslim world).

It must be pointed out that the right of return (which the Israeli agreed to in order to get UN membership) is an individual right which Arafat maintained could not be negotiated away. Also, the refugee issue is a regional issue, involving all the states where the refugees reside, and a two-sided negotiation is not really the appropriate venue.

Given all this, it is hard to imagine a two-state solution which isn’t a Bantustan in disguise.

To sum up my video was rather pessimistic about the prospects for a viable two-state solution.

However, there are some hopeful signs as regards American Jewish attitudes towards Israeli intransigence. Recently the New York Post had an editorial debunking the peace negotiations. All the letters to the editor regarding the editorial were from Jewish people who supported a two-state solution and blasted the Post editorial. Also, on the 22 of August a right-wing orthodox synagogue in New York invited the noted critic of Israel, Peter Beinart, to give a talk.

So maybe there is some hope.

addendum: the Israeli election video is no longer truncated

Lawrence Feiner CFG Co-Founder

I was born in 1942 in the Bronx. I graduated from ps95 in 1956. I graduated from the Bronx H.S. of Science in 1960.

I got my b.s. in math in 1964 from MIT. I got my Phd in math in 1967 from MIT. The title of my thesis was “the strong homogeneity conjecture”.  It was about math problems that can be generated by a computer but cannot be solved by computer. From 1967 to 1974 I taught math at Stony Brook and Brooklyn College.

From 1974 to 1979 I worked in computers.

From 1979 to 2003 I worked as an economic consultant specializing in economic forecasts.

After 2003 I retired and am now retired.

The Reagan Revolution and the Developing Countries

Cambridge Forecast Group Book

This is a book about the Reagan revolution and the developing countries. It shows why the years (1980-1990) were critical in determining the global economic future. The first chapter is how to think about the future. The second chapter is about growth economic and human capital. The third chapter is about development economic the forth chapter is about the world economy from Charlemagne to the present. The fifth chapter is about the Reagan revolution.

Our book is unique because no other book in our opinion has accurately described just how important the developing world was in Reagan administration policy in our 1979 Japanese book ”world economy/big prediction” the book upon which this book was based, we predicted that in the early 21th century the developing countries would be growing rapidly even as the developed countries stagnated.

About the Authors:

Lawrence Feiner is currently retired. he has a B.S. in math from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Phd in math from M.I.T.. He has previously co-authored numerous Japanese books that were favorably reviewed. He was a principal of the Cambridge Forecast Group specializing in economic forecasting.

Richard Melson is currently retired after working for an investment advisory firm. He got a masters degree in Asian regional economics from Harvard. He has previously co-authored numerous Japanese books that were favorably reviewed. He was a principal of the Cambridge Forecast Group specializing in economic forecasting.

The World As A System Of Three Gears Blocked by

Zionism

Think of the world as fundamentally three gears connecting or representing subworlds.

These three subworlds are: The West, The Third World, & Zionism/Israel.

The Zionist world “sends” Islamophobia to the Western gear and hyperviolence, symbolized by Israel/Palestine and the Iraq War, to the Third World, particularly the Arab & Muslim part.

The neocons, Wolfowitz, Perle, Feith. Kristol, Michael Ledeen, David Wurmser, Elliott Abrams, Podhoretz (father and son), Kagan family (Robert, Fred, Donald), Ken Adelman (who replaced Eugene Rostow in the 1980s as Reagan’s Arms Control head) plus their associates, such as Kissinger, Mort Zuckerman, represent Zionist panic (and the resulting poisonous violence, hysteria and deceit), over the potential meshing oftheother two gears: The West and the Third World.The Zionist world wants to bring about a “clash of civilizations” and a global civil war with Arabs…
