The Oslo Accords

This chapter presents the author's reflections about the failure of the Oslo Accords. He says that Palestinians continue to suffer under Israeli occupation: there is no difference between the pre-Oslo and post-Oslo features. In both eras he met parents whose children were shot, children whose parents were shot, terrifying stories of arrests, torture, and cruel interrogations. In both periods he found himself among the ruins of houses demolished as a result of draconian decrees or “punitive measures.” He has walked between uprooted olive trees, spoke to farmers banished from their lands. He saw soldiers beat up and humiliate people, and watched settlers impose a rule of terror. He met the deportees, the homeless, the tortured, parents who lost their children, children who lost their parents, invalids, and prisoners detained for years without trial. Nothing had changed.
