After Hamas, who should control Gaza? - Survey among İnternational Experts

Interviews 17:45 22.11.2023

UN Secretary General Anton Guterres told reporters that "the Palestinian Authority cannot go to Gaza with Israeli tanks" and therefore "the international community should think about the transition period". Apparently, neither Israel nor Palestine wants to control Gaza. But is it possible to manage Gaza with the participation of several countries and institutions, as the UN Secretary General said? Should there be an international zone in Gaza? Who should control Gaza?

Ednews conducted a survey among international experts on the issue and learned their opinions.

Professor of Political Science & ME Studies at Rutgers.Bureau Chief of Alquds Alarabi at UN Abdelhamid Siyam:

"First we should not accept the Israeli narrative that it will obliterate Hamas from the first of earth. Hamas is not a gang to be eliminated. It is a movement and an idea that does not disappear overnight. Once this war ends Palestinians should decide their own political system without outside pressure or dictation. A new inclusive transitional entity could emerge to manage the reconstruction period. The new entity could be made of nationalists and technocrats and maybe some UN humanitarian presence. The current PA (Palestenian Authority) is not acceptable to the Palestinian people, and Hama is not acceptable to the international community. What is needed some kind of leader who go beyond factions and ideology and focus on rebuilding".

Member of the Board of Directors of the Jamestown Foundation, former US ambassador to Azerbaijan, international expert Matthew Bryza:

"İt seems that the only long term solution to Israel-Palestine conflict is two-state solution. Which means Palestinian state governed by palestinian authority comprised of the gaza strip in the west bank and an israeli state next door. A democracy with democratically elected government. How we get there is the main challenge. So perhaps there needs to be a transition period. Türkiye has talked about something similar in terms of calling for system of guarantees or countries that would provide peacekeepers and guarantees of a ceasefire. Other countries have not taken up that recommendation. And the other countries in the neghbourhood also don’t seem willing to get involved on the ground. What a transition period would look like, and who would participate is impossible to tell at this point. But realistically there will of course need to be some transition period in order to get to a two-state solution. Prime minister netanyahu is saying Israel, will need to play some kind of a governing role in gaza, in terms of security, at least after the fighting stops. We all know that president biden opposed that is not realistic and we need to focus on a two-state solution."

British political scientist and journalist Neil Watson:

"Given the perilous situation in Gaza at the present time, and the ongoing Israeli-Hamas conflict, I believe an international peacekeeping contingent needs to be posted there. However, the constituent countries need to be very carefully selected so there can be no indication of bias, and it is imperative that it is not led by the US. Its role would be to control Gaza, support the security of all sides and de-escalate the situation as quickly as possible, paving the way for negotiations and, hopefully, a two-state solution."

The editor and political expert of the Economic World Center operating in Israel, Rachel Abraham:

"I think that Israel should have military control and build up democratic institutions that would enable the palestinians to elect the leadership, that is not "FATAH" or HAMAS. That is pro-peace, pro-democracy, pro-human rights and I think this kind of new entity should control gaza."
