THE ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN ROAD BLOCK READINGS
INTRO
Including economic and cultural integration wit the EU and NATO guarantees for the
security of the Israeli state
The Palestinian refugee question would be subject to resolution under an international
umbrella that embraces all the stakeholders in this issue
EUROPEAN PARALYSIS

sections off Palestinian population centers behind a combination of walls and fences will
exacerbate rather than solve the conflict
Europe could actually break the impasse by reframing its relationship with Israel
Relations between Israel and Europe are deteriorating
Little through has been devoted to how to reframe Israeli thinking b inducements rather
than pressure, and certainly not as an incentive to detach from the region
Which makes peace dependent on the Israelis and Palestinians learning to trust each
other and finding a way to live together
Interests of a two-state solution with a state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel
than to lament from the sidelines as the situation drifts towards apartheid
The Israeli leadership refuses to accept European criticism of its policies as anything
other than anti-Semitism
Americans have little tolerance for what they see as European passivity over the
activities of the Lebanese Islamist movement Hezbollah
EU with allowing funds to pass from the Palestinian authority into the hands of
Palestinian militants be they associated with the secularist Fatah movement or with
Hamas and other Islamists

the West Bank and Gaza
EU opted to go along with this requirement in the interests of reactivating the peace
process
