The Middle East region has been going through warfare for a number of decades now. The region has witnessed conflicts which can be attributed to the terrorism, resources, and territories. The struggle between Israel and Palestine has been the most resounding. It was started due to differences over Jerusalem territory.
Since the war started decades ago, there has been no solution found. Both countries have stood their ground. Peace agreements that have been passed before have not lasted for long as the parties denounce them and the war resumes.
Daniel Taub has seen it all in the last two decades. He has seen both countries come to the table for peace negotiations only for the peace agreement that was passed to be denounced by Palestine.
The issue of the Middle East has been aggravated by the approach that the international community has applied in the peace negotiations. Most countries push Israel as if it is the only country that is committed to a peace agreement. Read more: Daniel Taub | LinkedIn and Daniel Taub | Ideamench
This is where the things go wrong. Instead of using conciliatory approaches, the international community has been pushing Israel as if it is the only country engaging in war.
What they fail to understand is that Israel is committed to the conflict resolution cause, but they won’t be pushed to accept something without being heard.
According to diplomat Daniel Taub, the Jewish community do listen. However, what they do not want is any peace agreement that will be reached without them giving their opinions. No country can force them to any form of truce. It has to start with them. Any attempts to force them have been met with resistance.
They normally support the governments that the international community is rejecting. Anyone who thinks that ban or boycott of Israeli goods will push them to accept anything is lying to themselves. Already Britain has tried such approaches, and Taub has termed such efforts as a mission in futility.
