Peace Process Illusions and Myths Categories: Israel, Palestinians, Updates     Author: AIJAC staff

Today's Update features some articles clarifying illusions and myths which feature prominently in what is probably the most common approach to the Israeli-Palestinian "peace process", especially in terms of US and foreign efforts to advance it.
