8. Israel threatened

This propaganda card has the text ‘The artillery of the PLO state in Judea and Samaria – if it is established – will threaten every house in Israel’. The postcard, published by ‘the order of Jabotinski’(?), made its appearance at the end of 1992. Insinuating red arrows with distances in kilometres are intended to impress upon the Israeli people the imminent danger of secret negotiations between Israel and the PLO, negotiations which turned out to have taken place in Oslo.

On 13th. September 1993 the Oslo Accords were nonetheless signed in Washington by Mahmoud Abbas for the PLO, and Shimon Peres for Israel, Warren Christopher for the United States, and Andrey Kozyrev for Russia. The meeting was hosted by Bill Clinton and the whole world witnessed the uneasy handshake of Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin.
