Abstract:

The Arabs have consistently refused to enter open negotiations with Israel with a view towards ending the state of war and concluding a final peace agreement. Too often the pragmatists of the West have ignored all but the logical aspects of the bars to negotiation. The paper explores some of this illogical resistance to negotiation. The exploration is only from the Arabs perspective and does not consider the Israelis views. The periods of time surrounding three fundamental happenings are examined. to explain the bases for the Arabs refusal to negotiate the foundings of Islam by the Arabs 7th century A.D., the eastward expansion of the West against Islam 18th and 19th centuries A.D., and the establishment of the national homeland of the Jews in Palestine as a result of World War I.
