More than seven years have passed since the signing of the historic peace agreement between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (“P.L.O.”). While the final borders and powers of a Palestinian State are still being discussed by the parties to the agreement, the fact of Palestinian autonomy is an irreversible reality. As such, the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip has slowly been giving way to a self-governing Palestinian body which now administers most of the territories and nearly all of the Palestinian who reside therein.
