Peace at a price

August 2003
Middle East;Aug/Sep2003, Issue 337, p24
The article presents a interview of Israel's ambassador to the U.S. Daniel Ayalon. This interview speaks volumes about how Israeli officialdom really feels and why peace will remain impossible for Palestinians to accept on such terms. Ayalon believes there can be peace between Israelis and Palestinians but the peace he advocates hinges on Palestinians making no demands and Israelis making no concessions. Ayalon opines that as long as Palestinian prime minister Mahmoud Abbas contains radical terrorist groups, Jewish settlers are allowed to stay in the West Bank, Jerusalem remains under Israeli control and Palestinian political leader Yasser Arafat is kept out of the limelight, peace is possible between Israel and Palestine. As both sides struggle to bring about an end to the Palestinian uprising, Abbas and his counterpart, Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, have signed up to the Middle East Road Map promoted by U.S. President George W. Bush.
