Below is a link to watch the full simulation.
Peter Tatchell supports BDS to pressure the Israeli government to change its policies. Nevertheless, He said “fresh ideas like the IPC were needed to break the peace process log-jam and the cycle of repeated conflicts. Although securing majority agreement on both sides for the IPC would be a struggle, we should aim high and lobby long. An IPC based on human rights and equality for all offered a new way forward.”
Peter accepted the IPC constitution as fair to both sides but expressed reservations about the likelihood of the Israeli or Palestinian government doing the same. He was reminded that those governments accepting the constitution is not necessary since the IPC will be a separate entity and the Constitution does not violate their sovereignty.
Peter expressed reservations about the likelihood that the Israeli or Palestinian governments would permit an election to create a common government. He did not provide any legal, moral or technical grounds by which those governments could thwart the proposed-on-line elections.
Peter’s perception evolved as the simulation progressed and several legislations passed with the agreement of Hamas, the Palestinian Authorities and the Israeli government. Those were:
Legislation to require both the Israeli and Palestinian governments teach tolerance and understanding.
Legislation to seek UN recognition.
Legislation to create a joint economic zone between Gaza and Israel to be managed by the IPC.
Legislation to create a common IPC police force.
