The Geneva Accord: Plan or Pretense?
The 2003 Geneva Accord is a draft Permanent Status Agreement to end the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, based on previous official negotiations, international resolutions, the Quartet Roadmap, the Clinton Parameters, and the Arab Peace Initiative. The Accord was prepared in secret for over two years before the 50-page document was officially launched on 1 December 2003, at a ceremony in Geneva, Switzerland.
The Accord has prompted mixed reactions, ranging from enthusiastic support to angry condemnation. Meanwhile, the individuals who are behind the document have been accused of treachery by elements from within their respective communities, and large numbers of people on both sides claim that the document concedes too much.
In this analysis, the author attempts to overview of the details and context of the document and offer convincing arguments for adopting a stance of critical opposition to it.
