Cultural government is most responsible for causing the low Palestinian voter turn out. The Palestinian leaders have guided its citizens to not cast ballots. The Palestine’s have a large population and could effect the local government if the culture allowed them to. The cultural government represents on the ground values and problems. The Palestinian’s are fighting for their cultural identity. Many have speculated that as a result of the low Palestinian voting the Palestine’s are powerless.
Although some believe state or global government is the cause I disagree. The global government can assist both Palestine and Israel but does not have the ability to get the Palestinian population to vote. On the other hand state did not cause the voter turn out but also does not have the capacity to fix it. The Palestinians are not voting because of cultural values.
Since the Middle East war in 1967; negotiations and peace plans have taken place. The BBC staff article, “History of Mid-East Peace Talks” discusses the many programs that were attempted. The first peace proposal was known as Resolution 242. The BBC staff includes, “territorial integrity and political independence of every state in the area and their right to live in peace within secure and recognized bounties free from threats or acts of force”(BBC 2013). The current history of Israel has boarders that shift often dealing with fighting and territorial claims? Another attempt for peace was the road map in 2003. The U.N, United States, European Union and Russia created a draft of a possible settlement outline but flexible for negotiation between (Help). The global government attempted to assist the population in Jerusalem but no action wa...

- Voter Fraud With the election coming to an end, presidential nominee Donald Trump made a statement, if he were to lose the election it would be because of voter fraud. With that statement he has encouraged his supports to be aware of voter fraud at the voting polls. Many believe this will cause chaos at the polls this year as his supports remain to be loyal to their candidate and will honor his request. To some, they feel this might imitate some voters. As I have seen a lot of this topic on social media, I was able to find a few articles that may answer that question to if voter fraud is a serious problem or not....

- One of the problems with the US political system is the low voter participation. For the past several election the turnout rate has been unusually low. The reasons for not voting among individuals vary from not having an appropriate candidate, or simply feeling like our votes don’t count. However, one of the most important reason accounting for low turn out are the strict voter identification laws. Ironically, there hasn’t been any evidence that there is a large number of people who attempted an in-person freud.... [tags: Elections, Democracy, Voter turnout]

- In the 2012 United States Presidential election 58.2 percent of the registered voters turnout out to vote (IDEA). This figure is in stark contrast to many other wealthy democracies in the western world for the same election cycle (IDEA). This begs the question, why is voter turnout significantly lower in the US compared to the rest of the first world and other OECD countries. There are countless factors that could affect voter turnout, the most standard of which are based on socioeconomic status.... [tags: Voter Turnout Essays]

- As said by many people, Israel should be one state as well as two states. The “one state solution” is an overview of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It is the only solution that will bring tranquility, justice and freedom to the middle east. The new President of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, is opposed to the establishment of a Palestinian state (Rubinstein,Danny).There should be one state in Israel because it has always been the Jewish land, the land was originally given to the by Abraham, and many people from each land believe it would make equality among everyone....

- I grew up in a world with little insight into the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. I knew that it was an issue emblazoned in thousands of years of history and that, for the most part, each side blamed the other side for the conflict. From what I do know, I have been unable to view the conflict in the Middle East from either a pro-Israel or a pro-Palestine light—both groups have committed atrocities, and both groups have been the targets of said atrocities. After listening to the Israel-Palestine panel, it became clear to me that a two-state solution is the only viable option.... [tags: Israel, Proposals for a Palestinian state]

- Last October, Telegraph, The Guardian, and Associated Press and several others covered the news of IDF soldier Gilad Schalit’s release in a barrage of hand-wringing, as if to make up for their telling lack of interest in Palestine’s United Nations membership bid the month before. The indifference is only natural; Schalit’s release is more historical, since Obama promised to use the US’ Security Council veto on Palestine’s bid. Historical, that is, because history is written by the winners. Forget about the 1,027 Palestinian prisoners.... [tags: Palestinians]

- One of the main questions first asked about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is “who has the rightful claim to the land”, and in my opinion; Israel has rightful claim to the territory. The pro-Israeli stance that I hold is based on the fact that Israel has maintained military dominance over the disputed territory. I see the conflict as a survival of the fittest, where Israel has proved its supremacy by defeating all attempts of invasion and elimination, such as the Yom Kippur War, Six Day war, and the War of Attrition....

- The Israel-Palestinian conflict is a part of the greater Arab-Israeli long-running conflict in the Middle East. The main point of this conflict is the existence of the state of Israel and its relations with Arab states and with the Palestinian population in the area. Since the establishment of Israel, the Palestinians and the Jews have been fighting over the land for several years. Both believe that they have greater claim than the other. Even though, these two races share a variety of customs, beliefs and practices, there are enough differences that make these two clash.... [tags: Israel-Palestinian, Israel, Palestine, communicati]

- Luis Valdez's Los Vendidos "Los Vendidos," which translates from the literal Spanish to "The Sold Ones" or a more appropriate translation of the title is "The Sell Outs." This is a satiric play written by Luis Valdez and performed by "El Teatro Campesino," which translates into "The Farmworkers’ Theater." El Teatro Campesino, founded by Luis Valdez in 1965, was a group of California farmworkers who put together "Actos," or "Skits." These "Actos" were made mainly to entertain "striking farmworkers, support them in their marches, and attract public attention to their strikes and organization" (http://www.pbs.org/chicano/bios/lvaldez.html)....

- An issue as complicated, sensitive, and controversial as the Palestinian – Israeli conflict is not one that can be resolved with a simple solution. It did not begin with the creation of the Current State of Israel in 1948, but something that has roots going back to the ancient times. The history of the persecution of the Hebrew people started with the start of Judaism in ancient Egypt. The Pharaoh of Egypt who prophesized in his dreams that a child born to the Israelites would one day grow up and conquer him and his kingdom.... [tags: Israeli-Palestinian Conflict]
