“The Palestinians Have Never Missed an Opportunity to Miss an Opportunity”

Dr. Raphael Danziger will describe 5 golden opportunities that the Palestinians have missed, regrettably validating Israel’s former foreign minister Abba Eban’s famous quip above: the 1947 U.N. Partition Resolution; the 1978 Camp David agreement; the 2000 Clinton Parameters; the 2005 Gaza withdrawal; and the 2008 Olmert proposal. In each of these cases Israel offered painful concessions, but the Palestinians refused to compromise and, in most cases, responded with violence. If the Palestinians want to achieve statehood, they will have to negotiate an agreement with Israel instead of continuing to engage in their futile strategy of seeking international pressure on Israel to make unilateral concessions.
