There's been no fair peace in Israel/Palestine because Israel never wanted it. That's the conclusion of two noted Israeli academics who will speak in Halifax on Tuesday and launch their new book, "Israeli Rejectionism: A Hidden Agenda in the Middle East Peace Process"


Zalman Amit was born in Palestine and grew up in a newly created Israel. He is Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Concordia University in Canada and is the author of four books and over 300 articles.

Daphna Levit taught finance and economics at the Universities of Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion. She has edited and contributed to numerous books on Middle Eastern Politics.

Through their research, Zalman Amit and Daphna Levitt find overwhelming evidence of Israeli rejectionism as the main cause for the failure of peace. They demonstrate that the Israeli leadership has always been against a fairly negotiated peace and have deliberately stalled negotiations for the last 80 years. The motivations behind this rejectionist position have changed, as have the circumstances of the conflict, but the conclusion has remained consistent – peace has not been in the interest of the state of Israel.
