It wasted hope

Oslo
THE OSLO AGREEMENT: The escalating conflict between Israel and the Palestinians reminds us again that the Oslo agreement in 1993 did not lead to peace. And thus the HBO film Oslo almost feels like naive escapism.

The dramatic escalation we have witnessed in Gaza and Israel recently underscores once again that the Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1993 in no way resolved this protracted and brutal conflict. Thus, it is first and foremost sad that the timing of the HBO movie Oslo, which tells about the secret negotiations that led to the first agreement, is so good. Some will probably also think that the timing for such an uncritical presentation of this process is anything but good.

Award-winning play
