Peace after the Intifada
Political representatives worldwide have voiced extensive support for change in Israel and Palestine over the years, making numerous attempts to bring it to fruition. Journalists have been quick to cover these voices, making of peace in the Holy Land a recurring leitmotiv of public debates about Middle Eastern politics. The principles underlying their practice of coverage are the subjects of Chapters 5 and 6. However, despite its extensive presence in public discourse, peace has still to be implemented in the area. Only once in history have Israeli and Palestinian leaders been able to frame an agreement to resolve the conflict. It was the year 1993, when for the first time the world witnessed two bitter enemies shaking hands, generating immense hope and expectations. However, the Oslo agreement failed to transform the conflict and never brought peace to the area.
