The Imperato Peace Plan for Israel and Palestine
Imperato speaks out about Abbas Visit to the White House, and his peace plan for the region.
Today, 2008 White House Hopeful thanked Mahmoud Abbas for reaching out and taking the time to visit the United States and meet with our President George W. Bush, with mutual respect and consideration for the administration and the people of the United States of America.
“I do believe that the Palestinian leader is truly stepping up to try and create a better image for his people and to try to reconcile differences concerning the past leadership,” expressed Imperato, who has stressed the importance of a peaceful resolution in the region.
Imperato called for the PLO Chairman to understand the roots of the problem.
“I would like to point out to Chairman Abbas to have kind consideration for his people and his neighbors and to understand that the roots of these difficulties come from the children and what they are taught.”
Additionally, Imperato called for Abbas to separate himself from terrorist organizations.
“He must completely divorce himself from any terrorist organizations and denounce himself and his people’s associations or support for organizations such Hamas, and Hezbollah. These organizations thrive off of inappropriate activities, money laundering, and profit from the purchase and sale of weapons and the ultimate use of those weapons.”
By further denouncing these groups, Imperato felt that Abbas would establish greater credibility for his organization and further the peace process.
The next step, according to Imperato would be to approach these organizations from the ‘bottom-up’.
“These terrorist organizations are built in similar fashion as a military army, or organization would be setup. These organizations pay their soldiers and students salaries in order for them to work for their organizations or their group as any military does including organizations like Al-Qaeda, and the insurgents. I believe that a massive campaign for recruiting their students, their offices, and their people should be launched. With the power of payment and the guarantee of a monthly salary for a good paying job and for an education, we would have the first and foremost grass-roots program that would be needed from the foundation up in order to begin to effectuate change.”
However, throughout this process, Imperato called on the Arab League again to take a center role.
“I once again call on the Arab League to hold a conference with the leaders of all organizations and all countries to sit down and to treat one another with mutual respect and try to understand what each other is trying to accomplish, for their organizations, their people, but most importantly for their very own children,” stated Imperato.
Imperato then called on Mahmoud Abbas to request a cease-fire and cease-terrorism and open dialogue with Ariel Sharon, the Arab League, and the United States to discuss the real intentions of a Palestinian state.
Analyzing the situation, Imperato pointed to the obvious ties between the media and the terrorist organizations that seek to spread fear amongst the people.
“I believe that these inappropriate organizations are all intertwined with the propaganda in the region to create instability in order to continue the funding of weapons to their organizations from military manufacturing facilities from different powers and different countries around the globe.
Imperato went on to call for a stricter policy in regards to the manufacturing and distribution of weapons and of the movement of monies related to those purchases.
Then Imperato stated that the brute force removal of Israelis from their homes was not necessary for the peace process and Abbas should respect that Israel allowed the Palestinians refuge and concessions, when they could have used military force.
According to Imperato, he felt that in order to establish peace, Israel and Palestine should look towards the United States as a blueprint of democracy.
“I believe the majority of people in Israel including the Palestinians are for peace. So instead of trying to cut up the land, why don’t you consider it a country and why don’t you cut up different states with special designation similar to the 50 states in America. Each state has its own local government, its own religious values, and is allowed to run its own autonomous state under what I would call the United States of Israel.”
Imperato then compared Palestinians land claims to those of American Indians, pointing to the concessions and special permissions that American Indians receive from the US government as opposed to war between the two parties.
He also noted that the American Indians have their own land which they call home, but also have the strength of the United States of America.
“I call on Mahmoud Abbas, and Ariel Sharon to consider the United States of Israel, and to consider establishing states within the greater country for the greater good. Instead of trying to divide the land, keep it united and make peace with your neighbor and get special concessions for the states that would be in and under the United States of Israel. The Palestinian leadership could be setup amongst the individual states with each individual state having the right to have different rules and regulations per state as we do in the United States of America.”
Imperato then suggested that the implementation of Real Estate could play a major role in the region. Instead of the government ceasing property and giving away, Imperato felt that the land should be auctioned off, with each man and woman, regardless of background, Palestinian or Israeli, would have an equal opportunity to buy land wherever they pleased, just as you could in the United States.
“I suggest that the territories that Israel have been able to give up become Palestinian states within the country and that the land is given to each state so that it then can be sold to its citizens,” stated Imperato.
With individual ownership of land, Imperato pointed to property rights and how difficult it would be for the government to take back that land.
He also called for special concessions for development, with financing available for housing in subdivisions and communities.
The next step for Imperato is to meet with Abbas and Sharon to present his plan.
“I would welcome the opportunity to meet with Sharon, and Abbas, to discuss my plan and to try to rally support from the Arab League and the surrounding countries, including all organizations, to beg the difference with them and to try and open their eyes to a peaceful solution, not to an Armageddon.”
Imperato then outlined the poor diplomacy that has taken place in the region.
“The most recent disastrous dialogue between the US, Israel, Syria, and Iran, is uncalled for, disgusting, and this rhetoric must stop. The people of the United States of America and the people of the world need a man of the world to lead the free world and to see clearly a peaceful solution considerate to all parties concerned. I believe that I could be that person. I will leave it up to our administration for the time being, and put it in the hands of the people of the United States to consider supporting me in my efforts for sound, secure, and peaceful resolve to all our global situations that are creating hate, animosity, and are based on negative connotations, including the rhetoric in our own administration.”
Imperato then commented on how the US could demand respect, and ‘force democracy down the mouths’ of foreign countries when our own administration is ‘falling apart’.
This made reference to the recent indictments of White House officials, most notably Dick Cheney’s Vice Presidential Chief of Staff, Scooter Libby.
Imperato felt that Bush was not in a position to be making demands when other countries are seeing the problems here at home.
Imperato concluded his statement with the following remarks, “In my opinion, we may be heading for major disaster and we will not be able to turn back. Remember during Perestroika, our previous president Bill Clinton said that he was surprised at himself to become president of the United States, without any foreign policy experience, as Governor of Arkansas. The roots of some of our problems stemmed from the Clinton administration’s inexperience on foreign policy and the current administration’s inability to change course. Please do not only blame our president and his administration but also put the blame on the past Clinton administration. Remember the embarrassment that that administration brought to our nation, and remember that President Clinton pushed a button that should have never been pushed, and now, here we are.”
