The essay explores reasons why an understanding of history has caused issues in establishing peace between Israel and Arab countries. The author argues that having conflicting narrative beliefs means compromise cannot be reached. He cites the successful negotiations between Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in the 1970s and the 1993 Oslo Accords as instances of successful diplomacy based on future goals.
