Why the Israel-Palestine ‘Negotiations’ Are a Complete Farce” (https://chomsky.info/articles/20130902.htm; retrieved on 9/8/2013)
by Noam Chomsky “Alternet, September 2, 2013″ ended in the following way:

 “In short, there would be no meaningful changes. The DOP also did not include a word about the settlement programs at the heart of the conflict: Even before the Oslo process, the settlements were undermining realistic prospects of achieving any meaningful Palestinian self-determination.

Only by succumbing to what is sometimes called ‘intentional ignorance’ could one believe that the Oslo process was a path to peace. Nevertheless, this became virtual dogma among Western commentators.

As the Madrid negotiations opened, Danny Rubinstein, one of Israel’s best-informed analysts, predicted that Israel and the United States would agree to some form of Palestinian ‘autonomy,’ but it would be ‘autonomy as in a POW camp, where the prisoners are ‘autonomous’ to cook their meals without interference and to organize cultural events.’ Rubenstein turned out to be correct.”
