Israeli governments don’t last long enough to sign a peace agreement.

The Arabs have been negotiating with successive Israeli governments since the Madrid conference in 1991. Each time negotiations neared a final agreement the Israeli government collapsed, new elections were called and a new government announced it will not accept all the understandings reach between the previous Israeli government and one of its Arab negotiating partners.

Israeli counter-arguments to above objection


This is the Israel that you have. And indeed it does highlight the significance of time. Negotiations must not be spread over a long period of time.

Italy has even a greater rate of government change than Israel. Some in Israel and the U.S. have claimed that we should not make peace with non-democratic nations, because their regimes do not necessarily represent their people. But this is the Middle East that we have.

Can we wait for a different Middle East?
