Show Summary Details


The PNA and its customs still survived two years after the outbreak of the second intifada. Even in the middle of political violence, those who practiced the various projects to resume Arab Palestine could point to real and lasting accomplishments. The years after 1993 had been spent ensuring that Palestinian institutions and practices would build on the legacy of the Palestinian past. The project of renewing Palestine as an Arab entity similarly survived the outbreak of widespread violence. The Palestinian economy remained as closely tied to Israel as it had been prior to the Oslo Accords. Palestinians faced insurmountable odds to explain away failure or describe them as triumphs, and that the Palestinian direction would be held accountable for its actions by its own people.
