It’s difficult to understand how the architects of the Oslo Accords and the policy makers didn’t understand in real time that the entire process was a fraud perpetrated by the PLO, especially the signs that Arafat’s real intention was to operate according to the ‘Phased Plan’ to eliminate the State of Israel. As a result of the Oslo Accords, an enemy military was brought into the heart of the Land of Israel, their implementation eventually led to the Second Intifada, the Gaza Strip’s current situation, and a sharp rise of terror that brought death and injuries to thousands of Israelis. The state’s leaders hid from the public information regarding the danger of the Accords, with help from the biased and mobilized media. Despite the massive failure of the Oslo Accords, there has never been a process to examine lessons learned and no body was established to examine the actions and motivations of the architects of Oslo, and to expose the whole truth to the general public.
In Israel, it is customary to establish a commission of inquiry to probe disasters and failures on varying levels, such as the collapse of a dance floor at the Versailles wedding hall, the Sabra and Shatila massacre, and the Yom Kippur War. The leaders of the Oslo Accords never listened to the repeated warnings and ignored the writing that was on the wall, leading to a severe national tragedy. We demand that a commission of inquiry be established that will probe the decision making process at the time of planning and implementing Oslo Accords. Since the faith Israeli citizens have in the judicial system has been seriously damaged, the commission needs to be headed not by a retired judge, but an elected representative. The commission will also be staffed by representatives of the ‘Victims of Peace’.
