The Routledge Atlas of the Arab-Israeli Conflict traces not only the tangled and bitter history of the Arab-Jewish struggle from the early twentieth century to the present, including the death of Yasser Arafat and recent proposals for compromise and co-operation, it also illustrates the current moves towards finding peace, and the efforts to bring the horrors of the fighting to an end through negotiation and agreed boundaries. In 227 maps, the complete history of the conflict is revealed, including: The Prelude and Background to the Conflict - from the presence of Jews in Palestine before the Arab conquest to the attitude of Britain to the Arabs and Jews since 1915 The Jewish National Home - from the early Jewish settlement and the Zionist plan for Palestine in 1919 to the involvement of the Arab world from 1945 to the present day The Intensification of the Conflict - from the Arab response to the United Nations partition plan of November 1947 to the declaration of Israeli independence in May 1948 The State of Israel - from the Israeli War of Independence and the Suez and Six Day Wars to the October War (the Yom Kippur War), the first and second intifadas, the suicide-bomb campaign, the Israel-Hezbollah War of 2006, Operation Cast lead against the Gaza Strip in 2009, the Gaza Flotilla of 2012 and Nakba Day 2011 The Moves to find Peace - from the first and second Camp David talks and the death of Arafat, to the continuing search for peace, including the Annapolis Conference, 2007, the work of the Quartet Emissary, Tony Blair 2007-2011, and the ongoing Palestinian search for statehood.

Why is the Arab/Israeli crisis such an enduring conflict? Acknowledging the fact that the Israeli government has been resistant to productive political peace initiatives, I seek to shed light on how the traumatic social identity of many Palestinians affects their own prospects for psychic reparation as individuals and as a nation. Applying principles of psychology, sociology, and international relations, I specifically look at the role of Palestinian identity in young male students at an-Najah University, analyzing their notions of self in relation to the trauma of Israeli occupation. Referring to the work of Vamik Volkan, I further endeavor to correlate these experiences of trauma to expressions of social consciousness, with particular emphasis on the transgenerational inheritance of loss associated with the original dispossession of Palestine (al-Nakba). This chosen trauma has potentially profound effects on the regressed society, particularly those youth who are caught up in the same identity conflicts of their parents or grandparents. With the Israeli occupation serving as a daily reminder of this powerlessness, many Palestinian youth seem to be stuck in a perpetual mourning response to their traumatic environment maintaining stringent notions of 'us' versus the enemy 'them.' Although negative perceptions of the 'other' help propagate the antagonistic atmosphere found in the occupied territories, a growing belief in peaceful coexistence has taken fragile root among students over the last few years and questions the fundamental perception that Palestine cannot exist without its chosen trauma as identity parameter. What results is a sort of identity confusion or crisis between believing in the power of political violence as a means of legitimizing the Palestinian nation, or foregoing violent resistance in lieu of social initiatives at binational coexistence. Finding that the oppressive nature of the Israeli occupation stymies student hopes in the adaptive power of Palestinian social development, I conclude that current youth awareness relies on hostility as an identity paradigm, prolonging the emotional enmity inherent to the conflict, yet causing little in the way of actual violence.

Justice and Peace in the Israeli Palestinian Conflict

Justice and Peace in the Israeli Palestinian Conflict

In this book, the late Prof. Yaacov Bar-Siman-Tov argues that the failure of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process so far has been mainly the result of the inability of both sides to reach an agreed formula for linking justice to peace.

In this book, the late Prof. Yaacov Bar-Siman-Tov argues that the failure of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process so far has been mainly the result of the inability of both sides to reach an agreed formula for linking justice to peace. The issues of justice and injustice are focused mainly on the outcomes of the 1947-1949 first Arab-Israeli War and specifically in the creation of the Palestinian refugee problem. The conflicting historical narratives of the two sides regarding the question of responsibility for the injustice done to the Palestinians turn the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into a classic case of linking the issues of justice and peace.Yaacov Bar-Siman-Tov maintains that the narratives of justice and injustice in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict have proved to be formidable barriers to peace. Hence, he recommends that justice should be compromised for the sake of peace. The link between justice and peace is an important issue requiring both sides’ attention, but, given the wide and currently unbridgeable gap separating the two sides, it should be postponed to the phase of reconciliation rather than being included in the process of conflict resolution. The two-state solution is endorsed as the best and practical solution and as a first step for a "just peace" in this conflict, to be followed by reconciliation. Highly topical, this book is essential reading for scholars and researchers of International Relations, Peace Studies and the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The Intifada of 2000-2001 has demonstrated the end of an era of diplomacy in the Arab-Israeli conflict. The style of peacemaking of the Olso Accords has been called into question by the facts on the ground. Elite forms of peacemaking that do not embrace the basic needs of average people on all sides are bound to fail. The complete neglect of deeper cultural and religious systems in the peace process is now apparent, as is the role that this neglect has played in the failure of the process. Building on his earlier book, Between Eden and Armageddon, Gopin provides a detailed blueprint of how the religious traditions in question can become a principal asset in the search for peace and justice. He demonstrates how religious people can be the critical missing link in peacemaking, and how the incorporation of their values and symbols can unleash a new dynamic that directly addresses basic issues of ethics, justice, and peace. Gopin's analysis of the theoretical, theological, and political planes shows us what has been achieved thus far, as well as what must be done next in order to ensure effective final settlement negotiations and secure, sovereign, democratic countries for both peoples.

Finding the way to peace in the Middle East continues to be one of the great challenges of international diplomacy. This volume provides an authoritative annotated overview of attempts to make peace in the region, including all relevant documents related to the Arab-Israeli conflict over the past century since the Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916, and a full set of accompanying maps specially made for this edition. It collects both formal peace agreements and informal peace proposals. It provides both regional and domestic documents. The papers compiled here show that many brave attempts have been made over the decades to bring an end to the conflicts in the Middle East. They serve as not only comprehensive records and reference materials for students and scholars, but also as tools for new policymakers to learn from the past to improve the chance of success, step by step on the path to peace.

Conflict Without End, Volume III of Hart's multi-volume work, ZIONISM, THE REAL ENEMY OF THE JEWS takes the story from the 1967 war And The creation of Greater Israel To The present And The question: Will President Obama be allowed to deliver an acceptable amount of justice For The Palestinians in order to achieve peace for all, and, if not, Is a final round of Zionist ethnic cleansing inevitable? Chapter 2, The Liberty Affair "Pure Murder" on a "Great Day", tells the incredible but true story of Israel's deliberate attack on the American spy ship and how the truth was covered up, allowing the Israelis to get away with the cold-blooded murder of American service personnel. Chapter 3. Goodbye To The Security Council's Integrity, contains the key to understanding everything that has happened since the 1967 war. By allowing Israel to violate international law and settle the occupied territories, The major powers, led by America, effectively created two sets of rules For The behaviour of nations-one for all the nations of the world minus only the Zionist state of Israel And The other exclusively for it. This third volume includes insights Hart gained while acting as the linkman in a secret and exploratory dialogue between PLO chairman Yasser Arafat and Israel's Shimon Peres who, at the time, was the leader of the main opposition Labour Party, hoping to become prime minister and deny the Likud's Menachem Begin a second term in office. The story of this mediation effort and what it revealed about who really wanted peace and who did not is told in Chapter 12, The Blood Oath. Volume III also includes: How Arafat accomplished the incredible feat of rekindling the fire of Palestinian nationalism in the face of overwhelming opposition from all sides (including all but one of the frontline Arab states). How Arafat then risked everything, including his life, To persuade first his leadership colleagues and then his people to accept his policy of politics and unthinkable compromise and be prepared to make peace with Israel inside its 1967 borders. How Zionism's refusal to do the two-state business with Arafat eroded his credibility with many of his own people, paved the way For The emergence of Hamas and guaranteed its growing support. Hart's conclusion, based on the evidence documented here and in Volumes One and Two, Is that Zionism is not interested in peace on any terms the vast majority of Palestinians and most other Arabs and Muslims can accept.
