Navigating Peace after the 1967 War
After the 1967 War, peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors seemed impossible. However, Israel and Egypt came to a historical peace accord in 1979, which paved the way for peace with Jordan in 1994. Unfortunately, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict continues despite numerous peace offers made by Israel over the years.
