Rodman, Peter W.
October 1996
National Review;10/28/1996, Vol. 48 Issue 20, p58
The article criticizes the lack of substantive agreement reached by Palestinian Liberation Organization Chairman Yassir Arafat, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and King Hussein of Jordan during their summit held in Washington, D.C. in October 1996. It analyzes the factors which would make the summit a disaster due to the skepticism about the commitment of the Middle Eastern leaders to the peace diplomacy. It also assesses the implications of the failure of the summit for the administration of Netanyahu.
