Item Description...
Launched in 1993 after an agreement at Oslo, the Middle East "peace process" collapsed in bloodshed after seven fitful years marked by escalating Arab rejectionism and terror. Tracing the evolving history of that immensely costly experiment in political wishful thinking, the essays included in the first (2002) edition of this book offered, as one Israeli reviewer put it, a "timely" and "important" collection of "jeremiads, forewarnings of the perils to Israel should it ignore, or seek to fudge, the hard reality of its neighbors' continuing malevolence." This new and expanded edition, drawn like the first from the pages of Commentary, takes note of a much larger "hard reality," brought home to Americans by the mass-murder attacks of September 11, 2001, and since then to the West as a whole by the unrelenting jihadist campaign against democratic civilization. While retaining many of the essays from the first edition, this new volume brings the story of the Mideast conflict up past the Israeli disengagement from Gaza in the summer of 2005. It is a story still steeped in blood-but also, thanks in large part to the determination of the Israeli people and the vigorous American response to Islamist terror, one that may at last contain the seeds of a more realistic and therefore more hopeful future.

Why did the Middle East Peace Process Fail?  Oct 16, 2004
The sponsors of the Oslo agreement of 1993 seemed to imply that Arafat represented people who wanted a fair division of land between Jews and Arabs and equal rights for both Jews and Arabs in the region. And that Arafat and his negotiators would be in favor of peace, justice, truth, and good behavior by both sides, in keeping with what was expected by society at large.

That is not what Commentary thought. Its articles tended to imply that Arafat and his gang were thugs who wanted to incite and sacrifice Arabs to benefit only themselves at best. To Commentary, the goals of Arafat's side were to destroy Israel, reduce or obliterate human rights for Jews, and rewrite and fabricate Arab and Jewish history. And Arafat's main demand seemed to be for the enshrinement of his right to perform all these misdeeds with worldwide blessing, approval, and applause.

Roughly speaking, Commentary's articles indicated that the dubiously named Peace Process would fail because neither side's goals would be met. In addition, they showed that any concession demanded of Israel by the Arabs, if granted, was almost invariably designed to reduce the prospects for peace. Meanwhile, it appeared that the international community was prepared to allow the Arab side to break its promises, and apply serious pressure only on Israel. In addition, Arab incitement against Israel was unlikely to lessen, and international propagation of Arab propaganda was expected to increase.

Sure enough, Oslo failed. And we can and should read the articles from Commentary that compose this book. I think the best of them is the one by Fiamma Nirenstein. However, let's face it: Commentary was basically claiming the Earth was round when it was politically correct to say that it was flat. That took some courage, maybe plenty of courage, but not much brilliance. At least, let's give Commentary credit for taking a moral and honest stand on this issue.
Exposes the deceit and the real agenda behind the talking...  Nov 11, 2002
The dictionary defines autopsy as �an examination and dissection of a dead body to determine the cause of death'.

Quite appropriate therefore that this book is titled an autopsy of the Mid-East Peace Process. Few in the Mid-East or the international arena now give credence to the evaluation that the �peace process' is still functional.

This book is of considerable value in that it examines how the so-called �peace process' actually died. This is not a �play on words' but an actual investigation into what went wrong and why.

The basic premise for peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian/Arab world was allegedly �land for peace'. This book scrutinizes how this principle was actually just a facade. The most far reaching concessions ever offered by any Israeli leader only resulting in the Palestinian �intifadas' that are analysed here and which �grace' our television screens almost on a daily basis.

The book scrutinises the previously unheard of offers by former Israeli PM Ehud Barak in relation to ceding some 98% of the �West Bank' and Gaza towards a Palestinian state, a deal on �settlements' and �refugees' plus an agreement to �share' Jerusalem. Investigated too are the failure of Yasser Arafat & the Palestinian Authority to accept this as even a basis for negotiation, their violation of previous agreements and the reneging of their promise to resolve all disagreements through negotiations.

The authors themselves show that even despite agreed Israeli withdrawals peace was not forthcoming, the PLO not even amending it's Covenant calling for the destruction of the Jewish state.

The book outlines a statement through Jordanian Television by Yasser Arafat on the very same day as he appeared in 1993 on the White House lawn with Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres, Bill Clinton and co., shaking hands and making his promises of peace.

The book (on page 22) declares that Arafat, in his public statement in Arabic on Jordan Television, stated that he had no intent to halt terrorism, or any peaceful co-existence with Israel. Instead he described the agreement, in fact the whole �peace-process', was in the context of the �1974 plan', known by the whole Arab world as the �plan of phases' for the destruction of Israel.

Perhaps this should have opened everyone's eyes to the real intent and agenda behind the scenes, but clearly not so.

This book provides a number of essays by very learned people including Efraim Karsh, David Bar-Ilan, Dore Gold, Daniel Pipes and others, that investigate how Arafat duped the whole world into believing that he was pursuant of a peaceful co-existence with the Jewish people and the State of Israel.

This book also explores the regional & international consequences of the failure of the Mid-East �peace-process' in light of September 11th. This becomes even more relevant in few of recent developments appertaining to Iraq. Also explored and discussed are the future, potential conventional and nuclear conflicts between Israel and the Arab world, also weighed against the possible existence of a Palestinian �state' in Israel's very heartland.

A very illuminating, thought-provoking read and a handy reference book for the days ahead which we must all watch with interest.

A grim analysis of the clashes and bloodshed  Sep 7, 2002
Compiled and edited by Neal Kozodoy and enhanced with an "afterword" by Mark Helprin, The Mideast Peace Process: An Autopsy is a grim analysis of the clashes and bloodshed between Israelis and the Palestinians. The contributions include Israel's New Polyannas (David bar-Illan); The Story Behind the Handshake (Yigal Carmon); Land for No Peace (Douglas J. Feith); Where is the Peace Process Going? (Dore Gold); In Arafat's Kingdom (Nadav Haetzni); When the Palestinian Army Invades (Yuval Steinitz); Israel's moment of Truth (Daniel Pipes); Intifada II: Death of an Illusion? (Norman Podhoretz); The Journalists and the Palestinians (Fiamma Nirenstein); On the "Right of Return" (Efraim Karsh). As immediately relevant as today's newspaper headlines, The Mideast Peace Process: An Autopsy is a highly recommended, contribution to Mideast Studies and Palestinian Studies reference collections and reading lists.
Good book, but one major flaw  May 2, 2002
I like this book, and I'm in favor of Israel in this conflict. However, the problem with this book is simple: it doesn't even attempt to present two sides to the story. It is so full of sniveling and whining against the Palestinians that it grates on your nerves after 30 pages. It doesn't present one single argument in the Palestinians' favor. It's just whining, whining, whining from Israelis, who fail to see that their actions may have some role in the current mess we're in.
Why The Peace Process Failed  Feb 17, 2002
This book is a series of essays previously printed in Commentary Magazine from 1993 through 2000. They are printed in chronological order and demonstrate how and why the Oslo Process collapsed in failure. Commentary was long a Cassandra screaming into the wind. These essays which seemed provacative at the time they were written now seem remarkably prescient. The book will be of interest to any fair minded person interested in the state of Israel and its well being.
