Anything to do with the so called ”peace process” in academia, has little to do with actual peace, but with the scape-goating of the Jewish state of Israel.
They would never label the debate: Has Palestinian Arab intransigence and terrorism screwed their chances for a state of their own? The Palestine Committee and the international committee of the LO to arrange discussion on Israeli policies in “Palestine”.
HILDE HENRIKSEN WAAGE- HAS ISRAEL WON AND THE PALESTINIANS LOST THE STRUGGLE OVER THE COUNTRY?
Organizer: Palestine Committee and Los international selection
This is the theme of Hilde Henriksen Waage’s introduction to the debate on 6 the of June. On the recently launched track work conflict and power politics in the Middle East Henriksen Waage:
“In May 1996, the Peres’ arch rival Benyamin Netanyahu and his Likud party the Israeli elections. With this the Oslo process was over. ” Today, 17 years after, is the Oslo Accords still the basis for the Norwegian Middle East policy.
There is no doubt that the recent Israeli governments have intensified occupation of the West Bank and Jerusalem. It is becoming increasingly clear that the prospects for a Palestinian state on what is left of the West Bank is impossible. But have the Palestinians thus lost the game? Is the old Palestinian goal of a democratic Palestinian state for Muslims, Jews and Christians an impossibility?
Hilde Henriksen Waage is Professor of History at the University of Oslo. She has been especially known for his critical research on the Oslo Accords. Hilde Henriksen Waage is currently the leading Middle East scholar.
