The Shrinking Horizon of Hope
Program #SAIE017. Recorded in Medford, MA on April 20, 1995.
The peace process between Israelis and Palestinians is teetering. The current round of negotiations began in Madrid and culminated with the Oslo Accords and the much-celebrated 1993 signing in Washington. The pundits assured us that the long-time rivals had finally come to terms. Today, few express such optimism. Large parts of the West Bank and Gaza remain under Israeli military occupation. Elections, like troop withdrawals, have been postponed again and again. Expansion of settlements continues. There is repression, terrorism, violence and counterviolence. The central issue remains: two peoples lay claim to the same land. Will there be a just compromise where both groups can live in peace and dignity? The alternative is a permanent prescription for conflict. Lecture, interview.
