As a former veteran of the United States Army, I believe that the right for Israel to exist as a state is of the utmost importance to the United States, as well as a democratic and free Middle East. In addition, the right of the Palestinian people to live in a peaceful, democratic society where their voice will be heard is fundamental to the Middle East peace process. To that end, I support the Syrian people’s decision for designating several hundred square miles of land for Palestinian settlement and eventual statehood. Working in conjunction with the Israeli government, the Palestinians will be allowed to move to the land donated by Syrian authorities. In addition, if Palestinians have ties to the areas they are living (including Gaza or the West Bank), they may elect to remain where they are, but would have to defer to the laws of the democratic Israeli government. The United States recognizes Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel, which will be its sole adjudicators.
I will ask Congress to work with the Palestinians and Syrians and assist in their relocation process. I will designate 50 billion dollars in the reconstruction of the new Palestinian capital and assist the Palestinians to build a proper infrastructure. I will also ask the International Money Fund (IMF) to help secure 200 billion dollars to help with the transformation from Gaza and the West Bank to the new Palestinian lands given by Syria. In addition, new ports, water rights, and private development will be sought to bring much needed economic vitality in initiating the Palestinian economy.
The United States will work with United Nations, NATO, and coalition forces already deployed in the region to fight against terrorists who have perpetuated themselves amongst the innocent Palestinian people, who want nothing but peace.
