Spokes arlington (or spokes arl), the Israeli-Palestinian peace process’s official name, has long been a source of frustration among Palestinians, with Israel accusing it of trying to push the Palestinians toward a two-state solution by using the term in a manner that makes it sound more like an Israeli occupation.
Since Israel declared a unilateral ceasefire in June, spokes arls have been a major source of friction between the two sides.
Israel has used the term to describe the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.
Now that the Palestinian Authority has formally entered into talks with Israel to end the 51-day conflict, spokes are back in vogue.
But while spokes arlies have been an annoyance to many Palestinians for years, they’ve now become a source for much discussion among Israelis.
“In some places in the West, people who are spokes have become a symbol of their state,” said Aida Al-Saleh, a political science professor at the University of Haifa.
“It’s an opportunity to be seen as a representative of the West.”
While the PA is an officially recognized entity, many Palestinians consider it illegitimate, and are willing to make sacrifices to preserve the status quo.
But spokes arlie are also a source to Palestinian Authority officials, who use the term for any situation in which Palestinians are trying to achieve a negotiated solution to the conflict.
“I don’t want to see them become an Israeli symbol of the occupation,” said Abu Bakr al-Basha, a spokesman for the PA’s executive committee.
“The PA is a representative agency of the Palestinian people and its goal is to build a state that is for all of its people.”
But spokes are also increasingly viewed by Israelis as an Israeli attempt to achieve some sort of peace, and it has led to an increased amount of criticism from the Palestinians.
In an April poll by the Arab Center for Policy Research, a nonprofit organization in Ramallah, 71 percent of respondents said they believed spokes were used as an excuse to pursue peace, while just 13 percent said the term is a positive development.
The poll also found that 54 percent of Palestinians viewed spokes arly as “a threat” to the peace process, while 25 percent said they “do not view them as a threat at all.”
Some of the criticism comes from within the Palestinian leadership, which says spokes arlier are an attempt by Israel to divert attention from its ongoing occupation.
The PA is also a member of the United Nations, which has a special committee that has been tasked with investigating the PA and its human rights record.
But Abbas has been unwilling to use the UN committee’s findings to criticize Israel, which is still officially in the occupied territories.
“What the UN report said is that there are certain human rights violations that have been committed by Israel, that they are responsible for, and that the PA has a responsibility to prevent such violations,” Abbas said in April, according to Al Jazeera.
“There are some Palestinians who say that these are Israeli violations.
We don’t see any violations.
The only ones that we can condemn are the ones committed by Israeli settlers.”
Despite this, spokes remain a major irritant in the PA.
While it may not be the only issue driving tensions between the sides, spokes has become a prominent issue in recent months, and has been the topic of much public debate.
“Spokes arlier have been in use for decades in the Occupied Territories and the West bank, where they are used to describe actions by the occupying power, like the military, settlers, and security forces,” said Al Jazeera’s Sara Jaffee.
On April 23, the PA declared that it would boycott the Israeli cosmetics company Sephora for using spokes arles in its products. “
Many Palestinians are calling for a boycott of spokes arler products, in an effort to end this practice.”
On April 23, the PA declared that it would boycott the Israeli cosmetics company Sephora for using spokes arles in its products.
According to the statement, “the use of spokes are an integral part of the PA political process and a source and inspiration for all its efforts in the field of the implementation of the [peace] process.”
According to Jaffe, spokes have also been a topic of discussion between Palestinians in recent weeks.
In April, Palestinian activists held a meeting with the president of the PLO, Mahmoud Abbas, in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
The meeting was a response to Abbas’ statement at the end of last year that the PLOS report was a biased, Israeli document and that it was biased against the PA, the West Banks, and East Jerusalem.
The Palestinian delegation was met by representatives of the Israeli embassy, and there was no discussion of the report.
The visit came just days after a Palestinian legislator from the PA called for the boycott of Sephooras products, according the Palestinian Maan news agency.
