Cairo’s peace summit, which peace ?

On the agenda of the leaders of 35 countries invited by Egypt’s Sisi there are two topics :the dire humanitarian situation in the Gaza strip under heavy bombing by Israel in riposte to Hamas’s attack on October 7 on one hand and the revival of peace process between Israelis an d Palestinians on the other hand. During his passage in Egypt after congratulating Netanyahu for his magnificent job in Gaza expressing the support of the British government for massacring the Gazans, UK PM Rishi Sunak whose conservative party was severely defeated Friday in the by election and his popularity tumbled to only 24%, met with Sisi cited by saying “This will give hope to the Palestinians once again to establish their Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.” Which hope? 30 years ago, on October 13, 1993, Oslo Accords signed in the White House were supposed to give hope to Palestinians aimed at the creation of their own state on the 1967 borders with east Jerusalem as its capital. Many of that time believed this was a step in the right direction but the events that followed over these three decades show clearly that handshake between Arafat and Rabin in presence of warmonger Bill Clinton was a mere deception and a mere Hollywood show as the Palestinians were once more been fooled. As Mustafa Barghouti from the Palestinian national initiative stated “Oslo was the greatest idea Israel ever had. It let them continue the occupation without paying any of the costs” In fact, Israel merely has used the Oslo Accords to buy time, to justify the further expansion of illegal settlements in the territories it occupied in 1967, similar to the Mink Accords of 2015 which were a mere deception to give Ukraine enough time to strengthen its army with the support of NATO’s member states with the main aim, to crush the Donbass resistance opposed to Kiev nazi regime and Euromaidan in 2014. During the negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian delegations, the Palestinian political delegation focused its efforts on negotiating an end to the illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. Yet, in Oslo, Israel set aside all those issues, including settlements, the status of Jerusalem and refugees, for future negotiations. 30 years after Oslo Accords, with Netanyahu far right government, the prospects for peace between Israel and Palestinians move away day after day contrary to Sisi “hope” . In the current state of affairs, there is no room for peace, there are no two solutions to end Israeli occupation and allowing the Palestinians to have their own state, there is only and unique solution, generalized war in the Middle East and general explosion engulfing all the states of the region with the outcome, shaping the map of this zone similar to the WWI that shaped the political map of both Europe and the Middle East.
