The Arab-Israeli Peace Process in the Wake of the American Elections

The Arab-Israeli Peace Process in the Wake of the American Elections

  • 20 October 1996

This lecture focused on an analysis of the causes of the
obstruction of the Arab-Israeli peace process and its
future dimensions.
The recent Israeli election results and the rise of
Benjamin Netanyahu as premier of an Israeli government
composed of the various factions of fanatical Israeli right
represent an historic sharp turn. This crossroad does
not only hamper the peace process but also threatens
Middle East security as it will certainly return to actionreaction
policies based on the ideological rejection of
the concerned parties.
The lecture discussed Netanyahu’s political
background through his familial upbringing and argued
for the pivotal role that the US can play in getting the
process back on track.
