ABSTRACT
This article reports that Israel's foot dragging has stalled the Middle East peace process ever since it began in 1990. It is informed that the Oslo accords of 1993 brought promises of Israeli troop withdrawals, prisoner releases, and the easing of border restrictions that were never fulfilled. Israel instead proceeded to double the number of Jewish settlers on land seized from the Palestinians and cemented its hold on the West Bank. Ariel Sharon, Prime Minister of Israel, claimed that the late Palestinian President Yasir Arafat was not a legitimate negotiating partner because he encouraged terrorism.
