The Elusive Peace Treaty
This chapter examines the resumption of direct peace talks between Israel and the Arab states after the failure of the intervention of the Palestine Conciliation Commission (PCC). Israel publically declared its willingness to enter into peace negotiations and sent messages to Egypt and Jordan. Only Jordan responded and direct negotiations between the two states got under way in November 1949 and continued until the death of the King Abdullah in July 1951. Though the agreement was beset by endless problems and suffered many setbacks, it represented one of the high water marks of Israeli-Jordanian cooperation.
