ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the refusal of Israelis to engage in peaceful negotiations with Palestinians to resolve the ongoing conflict between the two factions. The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) proposed for negotiations. Israel diverted from a political process because the Palestinians, headed by PLO leader Yasser Arafat, resorted to terrorism to achieve their goals. Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said that Israel is open to negotiations if Palestinians do their part.
