A scam

This is an excellent, succinct essay on the "peace process" between the Israelis and Palestinians, both historically and contemporaneously.

In reality, as Henry Siegman points out, there has never been a real or viable peace process, but instead a "disingenuous commitment" to a two-state solution from Israel that "has served primarily to provide cover for its systematic confiscation of Palestinian land and an occupation whose goal, according to the former IDF chief of staff Moshe Ya’alon, is 'to sear deep into the consciousness of Palestinians that they are a defeated people.'"
