There are signs that the Palestinian Authority is beginning to
present the signing of the Oslo Accords with Israel as a negative
event as bad as Israel´s creation and the defeat of the three Arab
states, Syria, Jordan and Egypt, in the Six Day War.
One was a cartoon in the official PA daily, depicting a man preparing
a headstone for a grave, who is wondering which date to inscribe to
complete the text. The headstone reads:
"The deceased: ´Arab History´
[Date of] death..."
The man considers which year to add to the inscription as the year
Arab history died. The dates he thinks possible are: "1948, 1967,
1993, 2003, 2008 and 2010."
The dates refer to events considered negative for and by the Arab
world. Significantly 1993, the year the Oslo Accords were signed, is
1948 - Israel´s creation
1967 - The Six Day War
1993 - Signing of Oslo Accords between Israel and the PLO
2003 - US invasion of Iraq
2008 - The Gaza War
2010 - Possibly refers to the Flotilla to Gaza that ended in violence
The second visual appeared in a music video of a song encouraging
Palestinians to overcome their tragedies. Children are seen sitting
around a table drawing. One drawing included in the video shows the
dates "1948, 1967, 1993."
