of Arab-Israeli negotiations and agreements reveals a pattern of incompatible
positions, mistrust and deceit, and broken accords. From the 1949 Armistice
Agreements until the 1993 Oslo Accords, and since, the Arabs have failed to
fulfill written commitments toward Israel. But the various accords themselves
proved to be an effective Arab tactic for extracting territory from Israel,
without complying with obligations to observe ceasefires, carry out
normalization of relations, or promote peace with Israel as a normative value.
It therefore is incumbent upon Israel to refuse any political negotiations with
the Arab world generally and the Palestinians specifically, thereby denying them
this tool for weakening Israel without truly recognizing her national existence.
This conclusion is not a prescription for war, but rather a policy proposal to
affirm Israel’s political savvy, national honor, while preempting Arab
manipulation of peace for the long-term strategic purpose of bludgeoning Israel
into submission and collapse.
