Below is a link to the full simulation.
Professor Noam Chomsky teaches analytic philosophy and cognitive science at MIT and the University of Arizona. He was our guest speaker.
In each simulation participants assumes the role of Israeli prime minister, Hamas leader and Palestinian authority president. The rest of the participants are asked to act as either Palestinian or Israeli IPC parliament members.
The simulation requires the participants to assume that 5 million people voted, 300 Parliament members, president and vice president elected.
The parliament accepted the IPC constitution granting a veto power to the Israeli and Palestinian governments over legislation that effects their sovereignty.
Professor Chomsky declined to play the role of either Israeli or Palestinian parliament member.
Mr. Chomsky disagreed with the provision of the constitution which states “We recognize that the government of Israel is the legitimate government of the Israeli people and the government of Palestine is the legitimate government of the Palestinian people. “.
The IPC parliament passed the following legislation:
· The land belongs to no religion and no war shall be imposed on the count of religion
· Both educational systems to teach tolerance and understanding
· Joint economic Zone between Israel and Gaza.
These were accepted by the Palestinian President, Hamas leader but were vetoed by the Israeli prime minister.
