Abstract

This article emerges as a personal reflection on Israel/Palestine. It shifts the focus from the naturalized discourse about Israel and Palestine—two different peoples and two different places—to account for a culturally-shared experience of place. It argues that the Oslo Peace Accords were flawed precisely because they were part a process of disintegrating the very integrated—if inequitable—nature of Israeli and Palestinian society. Recognizing the humanitarian consequences of the escalating violence and militarized nature of the conflict, it argues against the terms of forced separation that have been imposed on these communities to date.
