Unformatted Document Text:  Conflict in Palestine/5 5. Divvy up Simulation Roles – Who are the main state and non-state actors in the conflict? Who will you represent in the simulation – the Palestinians, Israeli leaders, a member of the Quartet, a neighboring state? Date: _______ » Israeli leaders (2) – Prime Minister (Ehud Olmert), Foreign Minister (Tzipi Livni) » Palestinian leaders (2) =  Fatah (Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) –Palestinian Authority president)  Hamas (Ismail Haniya – Palestinian PM) » U.S. leaders (mediators) (1) – President or Secretary of State = » UN General Secretary (1) = » European Union = » regional representatives: Egypt,Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iran » Russia =  6. Position Paper – Carefully set out your position (or negotiating stance) in the ongoing conflict. From your perspective, what would it take to achieve a peaceful resolution – or do you even desire such a resolution? What would constitute an acceptable settlement? What are you willing to do to help to achieve it – and what won’t you do? Why is your position the right and just one? Consider areas in which there is some room for flexibility and areas that you consider non-negotiable. Due: _______  Writing “in character,” state your position as clearly and persuasively as possible.  State what you want and why other key actors should embrace your position.  This paper should be  5 to 7 pages long (double­spaced).  Draw on at least  twelve good, scholarly references.  Include a bibliography (or “list of works  consulted”) and cite all sources within the text.   7.
