Burying the Diplomatic Accord

Ha'aretz Editorial

 

This week saw the expiration of the carefully calibrated timetable for implementation of the Wye accord. According to the schedule stipulated in the agreement, the Palestinians were supposed to have been given control of 13.1 percent of the West Bank and discussions on a final settlement were supposed to have produced initial proposals on how to proceed. In practice, next to nothing has been done. True, Israel did evacuate 2 percent of the territory under its control, but then it decided to suspend the process on the grounds that the Palestinians had not fulfilled their side of the agreement.

According to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Palestinians have not yet collected the illegal arms held by the population under their control, their war on terrorism is inadequate, and they have unilaterally declared their intention to proclaim an independent state this May 4, upon the conclusion of the interim agreement within the framework of the Oslo process. The Palestinians, for their part, cite a list of Israeli violations, including postponement of the implementation of the "safe passage" routes between the West Bank and Gaza, the ongoing refusal to approve the building of a seaport in Gaza, continued building in the settlements, a delay in the release of prisoners and the freeze on the agreed West Bank pullbacks.

In the light of this array of mutual complaints, it is safe to state that the Wye accord, which was supposed to have extricated the process from its 18-month impasse, has instead thrown up new barriers to progress. On the Israeli side, the prime minister has proved that he did not affix his signature to the agreement in good faith, but did so in order to allay public criticism of his policy and deflect U.S. pressure. However, when he discovered that his continued implementation of the accord might topple his government, he reversed himself and effectively shelved the document. His backtracking, though, was to no avail, as the government fell anyway. The public will have to decide in another three months whether it is willing to risk continued stalemate and concomitant further erosion, on a substantial scale, in Israel's international standing, particularly in the United States.

At the same time, the freeze in the process has played into the hands of Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat. For the first time in the history of the Palestinian struggle, he has been invited to pay a state visit to Washington, where he will be the recipient of generous U.S. aid. The idea of the establishment of a Palestinian state is no longer perceived as a regional threat, even by the United States, and tomorrow Arafat is scheduled to meet with President Bill Clinton again.

Israel's constantly declining status, and its security fears, should have prompted the government to resuscitate the peace process even during an election campaign. But in place of policy, the prime minister is - as usual - offering election tactics designed to placate the right-wing extremists. The heavy pressure Israel's friends exerted in the United States in the hope of scuttling the Clinton-Arafat meeting and the fact that Israel's ambassador to Washington absented himself from a dinner held in Arafat's honor are striking demonstrations of Israel's unrelenting effort to undermine relations with the Palestinians.

More than five years after the signing of the Oslo accord, Netanyahu has turned Israeli-Palestinian relations and the entire peace process back into a zero-sum game. He cannot prove his claim that the Wye accord is better than the Oslo accord because he is not implementing it, nor can he attribute the current quiet to an unimplemented agreement. It is not yet too late to carry out the agreement, but there is no reason to expect that the prime minister will respect even his own signature.
