Abed Zughayer is like many young Palestinians when he considers the legacy of the Oslo accords, the first of which was signed on Sept. 13, 1993 .Many young Palestinians who came of age after the Oslo accords see the landmark agreements which were supposed to lead to peace as a betrayal that has only consolidated Israel's occupation.What Israel wants is "all of the land," he said, referring to calls on the Israeli right to annex most of the occupied West Bank, which would end any remaining hope of a two-state solution to the conflict.In the flashpoint West Bank city of Hebron, where several hundred Israeli settlers live under heavy military protection among some 200,000 Palestinians, "the Oslo accords have legalized the occupation," said 27-year-old Abdallah, who works in the tourism sector.For him and other Palestinians, the Palestinian Authority's security coordination with Israel is an example.Born just before or after the Oslo accords, some of them see themselves as belonging to the worst-off generation of Palestinians, with less interest in politics and weary of broken promises.
