Review of the Year (2003) in Other Countries: Israel and the Middle East

By Hanan Sher

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2003

In 2002, the violence that began in 2000, between Palestinians and Israelis, intensified. Military measures did not result in permanent peace but did result in international criticism. The U.S. government proved one of the few sympathetic powers toward Israel. President George W. Bush called for a Palestinian state, but demanded democratization, a renunciation of terror, and new leadership. Toward the end of the year, the U.S., the UN, the European Union and the chief European powers outlined steps for an Israeli-Palestinian settlement. The security crisis and the economy weighed heavily on the Israeli mentality.
