Peace Enemies

This book provides a detailed and wide-ranging examination of Israeli-Palestinian relations from the late 19th Century to the present. The historical overview of the conflict is followed by an analysis of the various agreements signed since 1993 between the PLO and Israel up to the Wye River Agreement of 1998. Other chapters discuss the status of human rights under Israeli occupation and the Palestinian Authority, as well as Israel’s foreign relations with the US, the European Union, Syria, Turkey and Germany. The final chapter, “Israel between Western Democracy and Religious Fundamentalism,” explores the current divisions in Israeli society between Ashkenazim/Sephardim, religious/secular and Zionist/Post-Zionist.
