Just What Did the Oslo Accords Say?
In the light of continuing violence and incitement, I think it is worth reminding ourselves just what do the two sides agree to in the Oslo accords.
Annex 1 ARTICLE II Security Policy for the Prevention of Terrorism and Violence
Both sides will, in accordance with this Agreement, act to ensure the
immediate, efficient and effective handling of any incident involving a threat
or act of terrorism, violence or incitement, whether committed by Palestinians
or Israelis. To this end, they will cooperate in the exchange of information
and coordinate policies and activities. Each side shall immediately and
effectively respond to the occurrence or anticipated occurrence of an act of
terrorism, violence or incitement and shall take all necessary measures to
prevent such an occurrence.
With a view to implementing the above, each side shall, in accordance with the
provisions of this Agreement, carry out the following functions in the areas
under its security responsibility:
protect all residents of, and all other persons present in, these areas;
actively prevent incitement to violence, including violence against the other
side or persons under the authority of the other side;
c. apprehend, investigate and prosecute perpetrators and all
other persons directly or indirectly involved in acts of terrorism, violence
