For the Sake of the Children

The Oslo Process kicked in 20 years ago.

There are many things one can write about its effects, its influences and its results.

One theme I stress is that for true peace to evolve out of the mess Shimon Peres, Yossi Beilin and Yitzhak Rabin got us into, is that the generation of schoolchildren who grew up during this period, from kindergarten on to university, must be weaned away from the hatred, the inculcation of animosity and the deprecation of the Jews and the anti-Israel incitement that the Palestinian Authority to this day is engaged in and corrupting the minds of their youth.

All this negativity must be unraveled and healed.  Peace programming must be in the schools.

If not, no peace.

So, to my not-surprise, one Brad Parker over at the closed-thinking Open Zion site, you can read this in Palestinian Youth and the Failure of Oslo:

Instead of growing up with a law-based, negotiated settlement founded on universal human rights principles, justice and respect for human dignity; Palestinian youth have had their futures stifled and suppressed by systemic discrimination, constant settlement expansion, and prolonged military occupation.
