This chapter deals with the author’s experiences covering various Israel Arab wars. It concentrates, however, on the scenario following the famous Oslo agreements and Oslo accords of 1993. Shot in Norway, Israel, Egypt, Gaza and Jordan the film examines the roots of the Israel Arab disputes, and hopes for the future. Though mostly seen through the eyes of Abba Eban, former Israeli Foreign Minister, the filmmaker not only discusses the situation with King Hussein, Bibi Netanyahu and President Mubarack, but also with members of Hamas, hard line Israeli settlers, and ordinary Israelis and Arab farmers. Also discussed in this chapter are the difficulties of working with a US public educational station.

Keywords:   Oslo accord, Abba Eban, King Hussein, Jerusalem, Yasir Arafat, Yitzhak Rabin, Temple mount, WNET
