Conflicting Visions Leave Future Governance of Gaza in Doubt

Diplomatic Challenges Abound as Israel Targets Hamas

Written by Shafeek Ahmad, Published On 23-November-2023

The ongoing conflict in Gaza has not only raised questions about the immediate cessation of hostilities but has also thrown into uncertainty the future governance of the region. As Israel pursues its goal of sidelining Hamas, various stakeholders, including the United States, Arab leaders, and Israel itself, present seemingly contradictory solutions.

In a press conference held in Tel Aviv on October 28, 2023, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his belief that Israel will take on "overall security responsibility" for Gaza.

U.S. Proposal: President Joe Biden, in a November 18 commentary in The Washington Post, envisions the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority governing Gaza. He suggests an interim security arrangement, possibly involving an international coalition, to facilitate the transition. Biden emphasizes the international community’s role in supporting Gaza’s residents and establishing a reconstruction mechanism for long-term sustainability.

Arab Leaders’ Position: Arab leaders, touring the five permanent U.N. Security Council states, emphasize an immediate end to hostilities and the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza residents. However, they remain notably silent on the long-term governance question. While supporting the idea of a Palestinian state, participation in an interim security force for Gaza is firmly rejected by some countries in the delegation.

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi categorically stated, “There’ll be no Arab troops going to Gaza.” The delegation raises concerns about the lack of commitment from the U.S. and the European Union in pressuring Israel, prompting alternative diplomatic channels, including engagement with China, to convey their concerns.

Israeli Perspective: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledges that Israel initiated its military campaign without a clear plan for Gaza’s post-Hamas era. He indicates Israel’s willingness to assume “overall security responsibility” for an indefinite period after the conflict, although the specifics remain uncertain.

Regional Concerns: Arab leaders, wary of Israel’s coalition, doubt the willingness of the U.S. and its allies to pressure Israel for a swift resolution and serious talks on a two-state solution. The fear of a potential regional spillover and widespread instability prompts engagement with alternative diplomatic channels, including China.

Conclusion: The conflicting visions on Gaza’s future governance present a complex diplomatic challenge. While immediate concerns focus on ending hostilities and addressing the humanitarian crisis, the long-term political landscape remains uncertain. The role of key players, the commitment of the international community, and the evolving dynamics in the region will undoubtedly shape Gaza’s future.

Editor’s Note: The evolving situation requires continuous monitoring, and further developments will be reported as they unfold.
