Amos Oz: We can reduce Israeli-Palestinian conflict to Israel-Gaza conflict

Famous author Amos Oz said on Sunday that “in a few short months we can reduce the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to an Israel-Gaza conflict,” in a speech on the IDF and Israeli Society at IDC in Herzliya.

Oz was explaining that he believed peace could be reached quickly with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and the West Bank Palestinians, so that the conflict with the Palestinians would be limited to a conflict with Hamas in Gaza.

Oz urged accepting the principles of the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, saying that if it had been offered to Israel 50 years ago, the country “would have been dancing in the streets.”
