Israel Palestine Agreements
On May 14, 1948, the State of Israel was proclaimed and five Arab nations were attacked in support of the Palestinian Arabs. The Israelis fought against the Arab armies and conquered a considerable territory that had originally been attributed to the Arabs during the partition of Palestine by the United Nations in 1947. After two successive truces brokered by the United Nations, the State of Israel concluded formal ceasefire agreements with Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria in February 1949. These agreements left Israel permanent control over the area it had conquered during the conflict. The stated objectives of the Oslo Accords were, among other things, transitional Palestinian autonomy (not the Palestinian Authority, but the Palestinian Legislative Council) and the lasting resolution of unresolved issues within five years, on the basis of Security Council resolutions 242 and 338. Although the agreements recognize Palestinian “legitimate and political rights,” they remain silent on their fate after the transition period. The Oslo Accords do not define the nature of Palestinian autonomy after Oslo, their powers and responsibilities, nor the boundaries of the territory it would eventually govern. Israel reacted angrily to the Agreement on Gaza reached on 23 April 2014 between Fatah and Hamas, the main objective of which was reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas, the formation of a palestinian unity government and the holding of new elections.  Israel has halted peace talks with the Palestinians and said it would “not negotiate with a Palestinian government supported by Hamas, a terrorist organization that calls for the destruction of Israel” and has threatened to take sanctions against the Palestinian Authority, including a previously announced Israeli plan to unilaterally withdraw Palestinian debt from Israeli companies from the tax revenues that Israel will receive for the Palestinian Authority.   Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Abbas of sabotaging peace efforts. He said that Abbas could not have peace with Hamas and Israel and that he had to make a choice.  Abbas stated that the agreement was not contrary to his commitment to peace with Israel on the basis of a two-state solution and assured reporters that any unity government would recognize Israel, that it would be non-violent and bound by previous PLO agreements.  Shortly thereafter, Israel began implementing economic sanctions against the Palestinians and announced its intention to build housing for Palestinians in Territory C of the West Bank.
 Abbas also threatened to dissolve the Palestinian Authority, meaning that Israel is fully responsible for the West Bank and Gaza a threat that the Palestinian Authority has not implemented.  The Oslo Accords are an agreement between the Government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO): the Oslo I Agreements, signed in 1993 in Washington, D.C.  and the Oslo II Agreements signed in Taba, Egypt, in 1995.  The Oslo Accords marked the beginning of the Oslo process, a peace process aimed at reaching a peace treaty on the basis of UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338 and respecting the “right of the Palestinian people to self-determination”. The Oslo process began after secret negotiations in Oslo, which led to the PLO`s recognition of the State of Israel and Israel`s recognition of the PLO as a representative of the Palestinian people and negotiating partner. Four years after the outbreak of a Palestinian insurgency, an international peace conference is being held in Madrid. Representatives of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) are participating. No agreement is reached, but the stage is set for direct contacts. To the right.
But to be clear, it was not reported by Mark Landler, an honest journalist, who honors off-balance agreements.
