This chapter examines the impact of the Oslo Accords as it enters its third decade. It describes how negotiations were doomed to absolute failure by Israeli conditions, caveats, and loopholes; after Israel's latest wars in 2014, 2012, and 2008–2009, which left more Palestinians believing in armed resistance against Israel's occupation and illegal intimidation. The majority of Palestinians in Gaza blame the failure of negotiations not only on Israel but also on Palestinian leaders. Blame also lies with the United States government, which blocks every possibility of mutual peace through its bias toward Israel. In addition, it lies with pressure, and criticism, from Israeli lobbyists every time the US tries to take a step toward mutual peace based on international laws.

Keywords:   Oslo Accords, Palestine, Israel, peace process, United States
