Prospects for Peace and Palestine
Program #ARUN001. Recorded in Wichita, KS on November 13, 1993.
The Oslo Accord between the Israeli government and the Palestine Liberation Organization was signed in Washington on September 13, 1993. The gala event, featuring Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, generated much media fanfare. The New York Times called it "the handshake that shook the world." Now that the euphoria has subsided, it is clear that crucial issues remain unresolved. Critical voices are emerging suggesting that the agreement is seriously flawed. Are some of Jericho's walls coming down only to be replaced by others? Lecture. Interview by David Barsamian.
