Review of the Year (2004) in Foreign Countries: Israel

By Hanan Sher

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2004

The year marked a turning point in dealing with the Palestinian intifada. U.S.-Israeli relations were solidified. Ariel Sharon and the Likud Party won a large victory in this year's elections. Negotiations moved forward between Israel and Palestine, but the peace process remained fragile and began to disintegrate by the end of the year. Sharon suggested the concept of unilateral withdrawal and the political left introduced the idea of constructing a security fence to protect Israelis from West Bank terrorists. Israel formed a flourishing alliance with India.
