Article
The readiness of army commanders in Egypt and Tunisia to counter the internal security agencies deployed by their own governments against civilian protestors in early 2011 proved decisive in bringing down presidents-for-life Husni Mubarak and Zayn al-ʿAbidin bin ʿAli. This brings into sharp relief questions about how to approach and assess the vari...
Article
The policies of the Quartet of the United States, the UN, the EU and Russia have contributed materially to systemic, probably irreversible collapse - 'state failure' - in the Palestinian Authority. The Hamas takeover of Gaza in June 2007 underlined the consequences of applying sweeping, punitive sanctions against an entity and a population already...
Article
An opportunity, unexpected and ephemeral, is taking shape to establish a credible Palestinian state within the next few years that enjoys geographical continuity and equitable borders-including a viable capital in East Jerusalem-as well as meaningful sovereign control over its population, territory, natural resources, and, no less important, land,...
Article
The Palestinians face bleak strategic prospects. There is a substantial price to pay for the political misjudgements of the past two years by their leadership. Palestinian statehood has been placed in serious doubt, raising the spectre of new, and increasingly violent and disintegrative, trajectories in the Palestinian–Israeli relationship. This na...
Article
In October 2000, at the onset of the latest intifada, key political and security officials on both the Palestinian and the Israeli side still considered an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal to be politically realisable. Some of the substance of a mutually acceptable deal finally emerged at the bilateral talks held in the Red Sea resort of Taba in late...
Article
Dramatic as it was, the bloodshed of autumn 2000 could not obscure the fact that little had changed in the basic political parameters of the Palestinian-Israeli relationship. On one side, any Israeli government, no matter what its ideological persuasion, still has to deal with the Palestinians as a separate national reality and political entity. On...
Article
In this concept paper, the Joint Working Group on Israeli-Palestinian Relations-a group of influential Palestinians and Israelis that has been meeting periodically since 1994 to discuss final-status issues in the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations-explores the future relationship between the two societies after the signing of a peace agreement. The p...
Article
To most Palestinians, 1948, the year of al-Nakba is the formative year of their lives. This is true irrespective of age background, or occupation, or whether the person is a refugee or not, or lives in Palestine or the diaspora. On this fiftieth anniversary of al-Nakba, JPS asked a number of Palestinians of different generations and walks of life t...
Article
Three decades later, the circumstances that led to the Arab–Israeli war of June 1967 bare again the subject of scholarly attention as the end of the Cold War and the release of official documents in the United States, Soviet Union, Britain, and Israel have allowed surviving participants to compare notes and made possible the detailed reconstruction...
Article
Trente ans apres la guerre israelo-arabe de juin 1967, les circonstances qui y ont conduit font a nouveau l'objet de travaux de recherche. La fin de la guerre froide et la possibilite desormais d'acceder a certains documents officiels aux Etats-Unis, en Union sovietique, en Grande-Bretagne et en Israel, ont permis aux survivants de ces evenements d...
Article
Armed struggle for the liberation of Palestine has been a rallying cry of the Palestinian national movement since its emergence in the 1960s, but its results have never been more than marginal. Instead, military groups have served a primarily political function, offering Palestinians in the diaspora organizational structures for political expressio...
Article
Cet article traite des menaces qui pesent sur la securite palestinienne ; a cette fin, il redefinit le concept de securite d'un futur Etat palestinien, analysant la pertinence des concepts de dissuasion et de defense. L'auteur soutient, d'une part, que la securite des Palestiniens tout comme celle d'Israel, devra s'inscrire dans le cadre une proble...
