I definitely believe everything should be discussed about Palestine
IMC -- that is the proposal that SF-IMC is making. Lots has certainly
been discussed over and over again in private, between the people who
were involved in the conflict before, and so on.
You & I may disagree in that I don't believe any of the original
participants should be banned from this discussion -- knowing them all
pretty well, I think there is hope for a Palestine IMC where everyone
could be comfortable and productive. I don't know what your experience
with them is, so who knows.
I think this discussion and more should and could happen within the
context of the SF-IMC proposal -- this is, in fact, WHAT we are
proposing. If you want to be in on the discussion, I think that makes
sense -- we should be as inclusive as possible to get new volunteers
who want to help.
And you bring up some other points about how to do this right, to list
them out from my point of view:
1) How to deal with language issues -- english, arabic, etc
2) How to include everyone who was involved before
3) How to deal with internet/email access issues
4) How to deal with security issues (for everyone involved)
5) How to convince all stakeholders that #s 1-4 are met and they can
be comfortable engaging in the discussion
These challenges and the time investment required to deal with them
are what has prevented this long-needed discussion from happening
before. I personally have the time now to help and I think it is
So, I'm not sure if what you are proposing is any different from what
SF-IMC is proposing. Is it?
