Israel and the Peace Table
When tensions and conflicts are running high between the Israelis and their adversaries. They receive a lot more foreign aid as well as uniting of the international Jewish community behind the State of Israel. Historically durning times of recent peace talks the Palestinians lose more of their ground and the Israeli right wing extremists become more vocal and actively threatening to the Israeli and Palestinian establishment. With the number of illegal Jewish settlers in the West Bank and especially around East Jerusalem more than doubled since the Oslo Accords of 1993.
Over recent years the Israelis have changed the “realities on the ground” on disputed land around the Old City of Jerusalem- East Jerusalem and the West Bank through social engineering. It will only be through social engineering that is more fair and balance that a long term peace solution can be obtained. A clearer vision to how peace would look like and how it is going to work must be outline for more people to understand. The rule of laws must be enforced fairly and be very similar on both sides. What should be right for one side should be right for the other side as well.
