The Palestinian–Israel conflict has been synonymous with the Arab–Israeli conflict for large parts of the region’s post-Second World War history. In 1948, 1967, and 1973, Arab states claimed to have fought in the name of Palestine, with the aim of destroying the Zionist state. The Peace Process has also been synonymous with the effort to ‘normalise’ relations between Israel and its Arab neighbours. Whereas Syria historically aspired to a ‘comprehensive’ peace agreement, the U.S. and its Israeli client sought to negotiate separate peace agreements with individual Arab states.
