West of the West Bank

The Limits of the Land. How the Struggle for the West Bank Shaped the Arab-Israeli Conflict
Forfatter: Avshalom Rubin
Forlag: Indiana University Press (USA)
The conflict between Israel and Palestine is more difficult to resolve than ever, states a Middle Eastern scientist in a new book. 


When the Oslo Accords were signed in September 1993, there were 111.600 Israeli settlers in the West Bank. Including East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights, the number was 281.800.

Today, the number of Israelis living in occupied territory has long since reached the 600.000. The Oslo Accords, which optimistically described the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within a five-year timeframe, are considered by most to be a piece of past failure, and it is difficult to see how a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can be turned into reality.
