Another Perspective on Middle East Peace

Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi

Political scientist Emanuele Ottolenghi provides an important, but not often heard, perspective on the Palestinian-Israeli peace process. According to Ottolenghi, "the region's momentous historical changes are largely beyond the reach of Western influence." Unfortunately, he writes, the West has

still not come to terms with reality when it comes to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Despite decades of failed diplomatic efforts, Western leaders are still obsessed with finding a lasting solution, thus appearing oblivious to the daunting challenges such a goal faces in the increasingly ebullient regional environment.

The scholar explains the"six mistaken assumptions that have driven successive diplomatic efforts [to achieve a Palestinian-Israeli peace agreement] to complete failure." Read about them here.
