Policy Options (was Rubber Chicken Circuit)

I'm running, but the abstract of my position is that the Arab States need to combine together to militarily occupy Palestine and to take responsibility for topping Hamas. Establishing a benign military dictatorship consisting of several nations can lead to economic prosperity, rebuilding of the slums that contribute to the continuing problem in Gaza and the West Bank, Palestine at large. Investment in infrastructure will lead to full employment. Installation of schools with teachers who teach objective truth in a generally secular way will prepare the young for employment positions both within and without Palestine. 

We saw this happen in Beruit, where the Saudis spend billions to clean the place up, establish order, prosperity and peace. Beruit is remarkably calm these days and it can be attributed to the policy of "Making Beruit Great Again". Palestine was never great. It's been a festering sewer for decades and there is no motivation for politicians to do other than what they do today. It can be fixed, but not with the current leadership in place. Drastic needs call for a drastic solution that does not directly involve Israel, but they need to be consulted and listened to while this transformation is taking place.

The US should not broker this agreement. This is a military (shogunate) solution to a situation that is beyond control by other means and it should be administered by the Arab states. The Arab states have the means to lift Palestine out of its present situation and they can sit as regents until it's able to find its way in the world, which does not include being a cat's paw for every potentate that hates Israel.

The official abstract is part of the journal article, but this is an abstracted abstract.
