Should we blame President Peres et al for Oslo?

By Ted Belman

It is common to blame them, but is it fair?

Francisco Gil-White referred me to his research on the issue at Historical Investigative Research

1989 – With Dick Cheney, the US began supporting a PLO state in the open as the ‘only solution’ to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

1991 – Bush Sr.’s administration forced Israel to participate in the Oslo process, which brought the PLO into the West Bank and Gaza.

  1. As far as I can judge, this documentation is very very good on the role of Ambassador Knut Vollebæk (now in Washington D.C.) and the OSCE in former Yugoslavia. I was myself shocked when I first saw the Rambouillet document, which must have been drafted a long time beforehand and must have taken very large resources to make out. (It bears typical fingerprints of a very resourceful American state sponsored organization).

    When it comes to the more secretive preparations for the Oslo Channel, which was initially opened behind the Americans’ back, one should take a similarly close look at ambassador Hans Wilhelm Longva (now in Damascus) who apparently on his own private initiative contacted Arafat in Tunis and started the chain of events which eventually led to the Oslo War. Ambassador Longva is the most pompous and slimy egocentric I have ever observed. It may take a long time to provide good documentation of this doplomatic eel, but I know that a local TV channel once made a documentary where he boasts and brags about his personal role as a “peacemaker”.

    I may agree that Peres, Rabin and other Israeli leaders (even Netanyahu) may be regarded as victims of foreign made conspiracies, rather than the real culprits, but I’m uncertain of what one should safely accept as forgivable stupidity.
