Our group sat down together and decided that our plan before was too vague and diffuclt to initate SOOOO we refocused and each of us contributed to a new way of thinking. this developed into our "Phase Plan"
Phase Idea: ( 10 year plan?)
Maintain current military spending. Increase spending in the social sector.
Divert financial aid from Morsi Government to social programs facilitated by American industry (ie: public transportation, cleaner industry, economic stimulus, micro investments, spur tourism!) This money is not under the camp david accord, we can do whatever we want with it!
it will automatically create more jobs for the egyptian people
Organization of Police Force
Weakness of Local Law Enforcement
how can we be sure that egypt will upkeep the programs we instill? the metro sucks and hasn’t been updated almost ever!
create self-sustaining elements...HOW?
The solution is based on how effectively we create the initial social programs.
we must share technology in what we are building with egypt
furthermore, we should not physically build anything, we should base our strategy off of stimulus grants.
Egyptian entrepreneurs can propose projects that fall under social progression and we allocate money depending on how promising the project looks.
Public support has been accomplished thanks to phase 1. (come at us Morsi!)
Balance the key foreign policy issues, Israel and Egypt, USA and Egypt.
with an end goal of cutting military spending and maintaining American - Egyptian relations, we must first stabilize relations with Israel, a key American ally.
Summit to establish and update the Camp David Accords into a part 2
reasons why Egypt and Israel should uphold treaty?
update this to modern times with changing government to continue meeting the best interests of all parties
remind them that the US is the glue to this situation
push a UN-controlled Jerusalem
if Egypt and Israel brokered this deal, Egypt would look strong to the middle eastern region by facilitating arabic control over this crucial holy city.
would be a victory for egypt b/c land taken from israel/directly supporting palestine
egypt wouldn't be ostracized from other arab countries
Israel willing trade land for peace
this banks on Netanyahu (pm of israel) not being reelected. Judging from the last election, it seems that the liberal, two state supporting, israeli politicians are gaining momentum.
Israel and Egypt have been balanced
decreased suspicion of America's intentions
Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood are less relevant to the pro west opposition thanks to key social progress successes.
we are now able to lessen the military aid while maintaining stability within Egypt
we can still maintain the non military aid and can be assured that this money will be spent effectively from the newly formed, popularly elected government.
