Benny Morris gives up on the Israeli-Palestinian peace processHistorians in the News
After 30 years, he's giving up. "This is the last book I will write about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," declares historian Benny Morris, sitting on the balcony of his home, overlooking distant lush hilltops covered with cypresses and pines. A pioneer in researching the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and one of the most prominent Israeli historians of his generation, he has had his fill of the exhausting and bloody cycle that he has documented for the past three decades. "The decades of studying the conflict, which led to nine books, left me with a feeling of deep despair. I've done all I can," he says. "I've written enough about a conflict that has no solution, mainly due to the Palestinians' consistent rejection of a solution of two states for two peoples."
