Asked in Jimmy Carter
What were Jimmy Carter's greatest accomplishments while in office?
Why has the roadmap to peace for the middle east failed?
A roadmap cannot fail. The peace process has failed to bring peace because the Arabs cannot accept that Israel is carved out of what was previously their land, without consultation. The Israelis cannot accept that some of their god given land in fact belonged to the Arabs. The Arab revolt with the British Army took back the area known as Palestine from the Ottomans. The league of Nations then gave some of this land to the Jews, provided existing people and religions were respected. The Jews have steadily expanded their country and left tiny parts for the displaced Arabs and their descendants.
Why has peace between Israel and Palestine been so difficult to find?
Who was the first Arab to agree to peace with Israel?
Probably the first Arab to agree to peace with Israel was Sheikh Amin Taif of the Israeli Druze. He openly and clearly allied the Druze along with the Yishuv (the Jewish Community of British Palestine) and and swore to defend the Jewish State of Israel. Of course, there were Bedouin Sheikhs and some Palestinian Sheikhs (like Abu Ghosh) who made peaceful alliances with Israel as well. The first Arab Statesman to make peace with Israel is President Anwar Sadat of Egypt.

What do treaties achieve?
You may be inclined to think that Treaties achieve nothing at all. They are only good for the day on which they are written. Treaties are not necessarily permanent. Treaties allow withdrawal or may forbid withdrawal. Parties may, and often do, violate treaties, so the party in question may be suspended or membership may be cancelled. Treaties may be re-negotiated. Historical Treaties have deprived Natives of their own land without compensation. . On the contrary however, some formal statements between two or more States, parties or even individuals, do allow for a success in peace, commerce and other international relations
Asked in Peace
Which countries did not attend the Paris peace conference?
After both World Wars, Paris Peace conferences were held to create treaties, ending the war. The treaties created new borders and made financial arrangements to repay the cost of the war to the victors. After WWI, Russia and Germany were not invited. The terms placed on Germany after WWI have been considered by some as leading to the second world war.

Asked in World War 1
What were some long term effects of World War 1 projected by people in 1919?
Some long term effects was everyone that was in the war agreed to make peace and help rebuild what they destroyed. John Maynard Keynes in his book 'The Economic Consequences of the Peace', which appeared in October 1919 predicted roaring inflation in Germany (and Austria) and added that the peace treaties were likely to keep resentment against the allies alive.
What did the new peace plan in 2003 call for Israel and the Palestinians to do?
There are two different important peace plans proposed in 2003. If this is asking about the Geneva Initiative of 2003, it requested for Israelis and Palestinians to return to the 1949 borders with some minor landswaps and a divided Jerusalem. However, the peace plan is much more complicated than that, so please read the Related Link which discusses the peace plan. If this is asking about the Saudi Peace Initiative of 2003, it requested for Israelis and Palestinians to return to the 1949 borders exactly as they were on that date (which is deeply troubling to Israelis especially as concerns Jewish sites in the Old City of Jerusalem) and resettlement of all Palestinians who wish to return to Israel in Israel. In return, the Palestinians are not required to do anything, but all Islamic States will recognize the new Palestinian-majority state of Israel.

Why did the fourteen points fail?
What Native American tribes signed peace treaties with the Confederacy?
The North American Native tribes had been treated badly by the US government. Some thought that forming some type of alliance with the Confederacy would be a better deal then being loyal at all to Washington DC. Both the Confederacy and the Native tribes had a common enemy, the USA. Thus the Creek, Choctaw, and Chickasaw Tribes signed treaties with the Confederacy.
