The Middle East Peace Process is falling into pieces. This imaginary theory was meant to be materialized rather than to stay only in our imaginations. For a long time, the leaders in the regions have made many obligations and none has been executed except for few hand shakes and photo-opportunities. The area has undergone declarations and many summits and yet folks on the earth have observed more of the same: massacres, settlements, destructions, bombs, occupation and all non-peaceful activities. Now close to two decades of patting on the rear and grins to cameras, where is the so called road map heading under the tutelage of America, Russia and also the European Union?
Looking at the bright side, we see the arch enemies of the past are talking to one another. Israel was acknowledged by few Arab countries and Palestinians created what is thus called “The Palestinian Authority” in the part of West Bank and Gaza. Jordan and Egypt established diplomatic relationships and signed peace treaties.
Yet this peace remains fragile and cold, although few statesmen might be rewarded by these achievements with the Nobel Prize for Peace. No warm relationship nurtured and was discovered between the Israeli citizens and also the individuals of Arab neighbors who prefer to make peace on governmental level. Trade between the threesome states of Israel, Egypt and Jordan is disappointing. Mistrust is still omnipresent despite the frequent visits between high ranking officials. Israel spying has been captured by Egypt and accusations of arms smuggling into Gaza is prevalent from the Egyptian borders.
Syria has unwillingly attended the seminar at low level delegates to appease other Arab states like Egypt and Saudi Arabia and also to smooth relationship together with the America along with the West. Palestinians received, as on past occasions, several commitments and promises and they will turn out to be shelved for conventions or future governments.
