Why ‘Land For Peace’ Doesn’t Work

Printer-Ready Page Layout

In any “land for peace” scenario, any territory Israel gives up is gone and can’t be easily recovered, whereas the Arabs are free to renounce a peace agreement at any time. If an Arab country signed on to an agreement allowing Israel to keep even a tiny bit of the land it won in 1967, that would be tantamount to recognizing Israel’s right to defend itself – which is in effect the same as recognizing Israel’s right to exist.

The fact the Arabs cannot accept Israel’s right to self-defense shows they are still a long way from accepting Israel’s right to exist. Why Israel does not cling to its interpretation of Resolution 242 with the same determination as the Arabs cling to theirs is hard to fathom.
