In his speech before a joint session of Congress, in Washington on July 19, 2023, Israeli President Isaac Herzog said, “Palestinian terror against Israel or Israelis undermines any possibility for a future of peace between our peoples.... Terror is not a bump in the road. Terror is hatred and bloodshed. It contradicts humanity’s most basic principles of peace.… The younger generation of Israelis and Palestinians deserve better. They are all worthy of a future to look towards, a future of peace and prosperity. A future of hope.” 

The Initiative for Palestinian Authority Accountability and Reform (IPAAR) will strive to influence decision-makers in both Israel and the international community to hold the Palestinian Authority to account for its continuous, systematic, and fundamental breaches of the internationally witnessed and guaranteed Oslo Accords. 

IPAAR will focus on both the Palestinian Authority’s malfeasance towards Israel and Jews, including, inter alia, terror promotion, antisemitism, “Apartheid” propaganda, and international lawfare against the State of Israel, on the one hand, and the widespread corruption and abuse of human rights of the Palestinians by the Palestinian Authority, on the other.

IPAAR will provide an extensive database of information regarding the practices and policies of the Palestinian Authority that undermine the goal of achieving peace between Israel and the Palestinians and advocate that both the Israeli and foreign governments hold the PA accountable for these actions.

IPAAR will also provide a critical research-based analysis of the steps needed to reform the Palestinian Authority and turn it from being an obstacle to peace into a vehicle that promotes a future of peace, prosperity, and hope for both Israelis and Palestinians.

Palestinian Compliance with the Oslo Accords: A Legal Overview

In approaching the thirtieth anniversary of the Oslo Accords and in light of the unique and complex relationship between the Palestinians and Israel, it is appropriate to reflect on some of the central legal issues concerning validity, accountability, and compliance with the Accords. Such issues enable or impede progress toward achieving the basic aims of the Accords – peaceful and fruitful good-neighborly relations between the Palestinians and Israel through a permanent settlement of the status of the territories and resolution of the major issues between them.
