Israeli-Palestinian conflict: a history of failed peace talks Part I
The conflict has gone on for over a hundred years and it is 44 years since the Middle East war of June 1967, over this time there have been many peace plans and many negotiations. If some of these have been successful, including those between Egypt and Israel and Israel and Jordan, a settlement has still not been reached in the core conflict. Looking back at a history of negotiations, the results derived from the different signed treaties are more confusing than encouraging. With the recent appeal of US president Barrack Obama to find a final solution to the conflict in the hope of avoiding any more bloodshed, let us look at the peace talks that have marked the history of this conflict.
