The Arab-Israeli Conflict

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Modern World Assignment: The Arab-Israeli Conflict Part 2 Sources A-E differ in their assessment of the Oslo Accords. Does this mean they are of no use to an historian studying the peace agreement? The five sources that I have been provided with are presented in different forms; some are presented as direct statements or speeches whilst others are extracts from newspapers or photographs.

Source D is a biased view of a PLO member describing the agreement as a 'Palestinian surrender.' The terms of the agreement are briefly given in Source E, which is a biased opinion of a Likud politician who are the right wing opposition political party in Israel; he describes it as a 'disaster'. A number of questions arise from these sources. Although source A is a photograph, it may have been either doctored or staged for publicity.

The sources provide an illustration of the extremist views on both sides that eventually led to the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin in 1995 and the failure of Oslo Accord, it is clear to see from the sources that no one was content with the Accord, and may be useful to historians to explain why the Oslo Accord was unsuccessful. ?? ?? ?? ??
