ABSTRACT
This article discusses the author's view that peace efforts in the Middle East would result to war. The author is traveling to Jerusalem to attend the celebration of his grandson's bar-mitzvah. According to the author, the peace process encapsulated in the Oslo agreement will result to war. The author added that the Wye conference is another step to a Palestinian state. Among Israelis, the coming of a Palestinian state is automatically equated with the coming of peace, not just between Israel and the Palestinians, but between Israel and most of the Arab States.
