    Khalid, You can improve on the Israeli system. Frankly, I hope your improving on it will cause Israel to improve it too. Right now the Israeli system is in decay. Yes, everything I proposed depends first on achieving the end of occupation and independence. But you should have the blueprint ready. There might be an opportunity along the way that will not return. For example: If Abbas dies one day (I don't wish it on him, but this is always possible), that would be the right moment to change your "basic law". Abbas might not agree to removing his powers voluntarily. Incidentally, it is necessary to have a real leader. In principle, it can be a prime minister or a president. The problem with a president is that he is difficult to remove even if he is incompetent. Bush is an example. He will ruin the US before he is done. A prime minister depends on the confidence of the parliament. Britain could have Chamberlain leave and be replaced by Churchill when it was the right thing to do.
