Jason Keyser

Error (Associated Press, Jason Keyser, 9/8/03): He [Ahmed Qureia] was the head of the Palestinian team in talks that led to the breakthrough 1993 Oslo peace accords, which gave birth to the concept of  “land for peace”–Israel would return occupied lands in the West Bank and Gaza to Palestinian control in exchange for peace and security.

Fact: The Oslo accords did not “give birth” to the idea of “land-for-peace.” U.N. Security Council Resolution 242, passed shortly after the end of the 1967 war, stipulated Israeli withdrawal from some, but not all, of the territory gained in this war, in return for “secure and recognized boundaries.” This, and not Oslo, was the first expression of a joint Israeli-Arab policy of territorial compromise in the context of the Mideast conflict.
