The article focuses on the issues concerning the type of dialogue needed to deal with the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians. It mentions that various questions were raised regarding the importance of a face-to-face dialogue and joint meetings due to the observed escalation and bloodshed between the countries. It examines the kind of dialogue which can be used to manage the conflict and establish peace negotiations for the countries. It states that one of the obstructions faced by dialogue participants is the assertion that they are abandoning the battle against injustice and get away with the conflict's realities. Moreover, it says that participants should be responsible in determining an image of the other country in their own community for the dialogue to be efficient.
