Abstract: The article presents an analysis of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process of 1993-2000 (the Oslo Process) by placing it in historical standpoint. It begins by showing how the Oslo Process was inspired by the legacy of peacemaking in the Arab-Israeli conflict, which postulated peacemaking between states, and resists that this factor had far-reaching implications for the way the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was analyzed and treated. This article also refers to what where the main provisions and goals of the agreements. As well as the factors that led to the non-implementation of these agreements. Reference is also made to the territorial division underlying the Oslo II agreement. The purpose of this work is to show that these agreements were signed to ensure lasting peace and resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but being a witness to today’s realities that are happening in the Middle East, particularly Gaza, we can say that these agreements could not create that lasting peace. The peace they signed up for.
