"I think we'll have to wait another 20 years to know" how the Oslo Agreement will be remembered by history, says Brian Amkraut, assistant professor of Judaic studies at the Siegal College of Judaic Studies."It seemed like a great moment in history at the time.It happened on the heels of the Cold War, and people were optimistic.It was not inevitable that it would fail.No one could have predicted the last three years."
A graduate student at New York University in 1993, Amkraut remembers watching the famous handshake on TV in the library with many of his fellow students.Oslo fit perfectly with the excitement of the times, following the collapse of the Berlin Wall when there was a global move toward democracy and peace, he says.
But Amkraut, who was in Israel around the time of Rabin's assassination, believes that tragedy was "more of a turning point. (Rabin) was the one person in Israel who could have made (peace) happen, sold it to the Israeli people.
Amkraut, who has lectured on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, is currently preparing to teach a four-class series at the Siegal College with Prof. Ronald A. Brauner entitled "The Middle East: How we got there, and where we're going."
The offers Israel made to Palestinians at Oslo must be put in context by examining what Israel was willing to concede in 1947 and at Camp David in 2000, Amkraut says.
