- Israel and the peace process since the Rabin
- Summary of Director-General Uri Savir's address to the Washington
Institute for Near East Policy, 12 December 1995. Too many
take progress in the peace process for granted. The same day
that Clinton and Peres had concrete discussions on Israeli-Syrian
peace, followed by a substantive phone conversation between
Clinton and Syrian President Assad about how to move the process
forward, Israeli troops redeployed from Nablus, the largest
Palestinian town in the West Bank.
- ANC statement on situation in Israel
- Issued by the African National Congress, 4 March 1996.
Bombings in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem can serve only to block
the peace process and are the work of terrorists, not those
who would promote peaceful dialog.
- Likud guidelines for talks with the Palestinians
- The Jerusalem Post, 26 April 1996.
These are likely to be the principles of Netanyahu and the new
Likud-dominated Israeli government. Whatever moderated public
statements Netanyahu may make to calm public opinion in coming
days, this is, in essence, the promised approach a Likud-led
government will actually take toward the Palestinians.
- Palestine: The deadly peace
- Comment, Living Marxism, 3 October
1996. The text of a talk by journalist Eve Kay, who was
invited by Genderwatch to speak on the state of the Middle East
peace process on 2 October at the School of Oriental and African

18 January 1997. Yasser Arafat and Benjamin Netenyahu signed
an agreement on
redeployment in Hebron, coupled with

but for many Palestinians the last straw in a series of
- Save the Mideast peace process
- People's Weekly World, 9 August
1997. CP-USA condemns the right-wing Hamas suicide bombing in
the Mahane Yehuda market in Jerusalem, as playing into Israel's
hands by discrediting the peace process.
- 50,000 rally in Tel Aviv for a just peace
- By Hans Lebrecht, in People's Weekly World,
20 September 1997. Broad-based demonstration for peace
to commemorate the fourth anniversary of the

and Meretz parties, the Hadash Front (with the Communist Party
of Israel), the Council for Israeli-Palestinian Peace, the
Gush-Shalom bloc, the youth movement Dorshalem doresh Shalom.
- How long can waiting work?
- By Edward Said, 7 February 2000. As Arabs we are waiting for
all sorts of things to happen with very little certainty as
to what they are, how they will affect us, and what will come
after. It is nothing short of staggering how our powerlessness
has induced in us an unlimited attitude of just hanging on,
waiting for the main event to take place while we play all
sorts of banal little roles outside the main action.
