Twenty Years Later, Oslo Accords Debated Rather Than Celebrated

Tzipi Hotovely.

Tzipi Hotovely.

“Oslo was based on three incorrect assumptions,” according to Hotovely. “The first assumption is that the conflict is about territory. The second assumption is that Arabs and Jews should not live together, and that segregation and separate states can create peaceful existence. The third assumption was that the conflict was about 1967.

“[Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon proposed segregation, with the unilateral disengagement from Gaza. The result was radicalism. Hamas took over. Gaza didn’t become Singapore like many hoped it would. Instead, rockets started falling on Sderot.”

As to whether the current peace talks will yield results, Hotovely is certain they won’t.

“I’m sure Bibi Netanyahu has goodwill, but the talks will fail. The reason is because the conflict is not about [Israeli territorial expansion in] 1967, it is about Israel’s independence in 1948,” Hotovely said.

The conflict is not about territory. The conflict is religious. It may be difficult for liberals to realize that the conflict may not have a logical solution.”

“We’ve been there, we’ve done that. We’ve tried it. It failed. We need to try something else,” she said.

  1. Netanyahu and his leckayers should be remouved, Israel needs new kind of politicians to face the nation and not let to be blackmailed from any one and circumstances.

  2. Abbas does not want peace.
    He wants every PIECE of Israel. He makes unbelieveable demands.
    I hope that PM Netanyahu will tell Abbas what he can have and not any part of the eternal capital of the Jewish state, Jerusalem.
    Abbas is demanding parts of Jerusalem.
    When will the world wake up to the fact that Israel is not "occupying" any part of what Abbas demands.
    The Jordanians occupied parts of Jerusalem and other areas in a war.
    They lost the war, and Israel now has control of Judea and Samaria, biblical areas, as will as all of Jerusalem.
    During Jordanian rule, they destroyed more than 50 synagogues in the Old City.
    Where was or is the condemnation of the Arab dominated UN?
    The biggest mistake Moshe Dayan made, was to offer control of the Temple Mount to the Arabs.
