The arcA Formal Structure for a Palestinian Stateproduced by the Rand Corporation. It is a giant leap in the right direction into finding a peaceful solution in the Palestinian-Israeli crisis. It is a ten year plan to develop the West Bank one day connecting it to Gaza. It addresses many of the problems the people of Palestine face in forming a viable state. Only with a prospers Palestinian society that resembles the society of the State of Israel will the people of both societies have any real security.
They spent more than 3 million dollars and four years in the development of this plan. It is a thirty-three billion dollar plan over ten years that addresses the Palestinian issues of transportation, housing, education, commerce, justice and the contiguity of the State of Palestine. It is a very comprehensive plan creating a clear image of a much better way of life for the Palestinian people. Restoring their dignity and hope for a better future for their children is the best first steps towards peace.
There is no way to peace, peace is the way. The Arc is the way for long term peace to become a reality in the Palestinian/Israeli crisis. The challenges are to make the Arc a reality that more people can see, as well as working out the full implementation of the Arc’s plan. The earlier more people get behind a plan like the Arc the sooner it could become a reality. Everyone should write to their elected representatives letting them know about the Arc and your support of the plan. Who could not support such a plan of a way to peace as the arc. Global Crier

Thank you so much for your information.It is very helpful.I pleased to inform you that your information has had a very strong impact on my future PHD.Iam very delighted to know that there is a PHD in Global Governance. After finishing my masters in peace and conflict study in Germany, I think I will have enough of peace and conflict staff and it would be better to pursue a PHD in Global governance.Diversity is sometimes good. I have a strong conviction to study global governance at Waterloo.Please send me a link that would give me more information about Global governance PHD at Waterloo.What is your advice about my idea? Thanks and God bless you.
