20 years ago a historic agreement was reached between the israelis and palestinians that meant to harold a just lasting and comprehensive peace settlement and called the oslo-accord and it was this 1993 and arafat and seen as a diplomatic master and a permanent deal for two states and to people. the so called two-state solution. 20 years on that goal is still far from sight. in that time the number of israelis settlers in lands in the 1967 war is more than doubled and it's very much a sticking point in the talks. israeli people have soured relations in the gaza war in 2008 and those who control the
5:19 am
strip does not participate in negotiations and we can speak to ali in jeresulum and welcome to al jazeera and i will ask you first what has the oslo accord achieved? >> i think they achieved the fact whenever you sit and talk you come back to the same perimeters, the problem is that we don't often talk and the last four years or five years we hardly met each other but now when the sides are talking it's the same principles and that is the main achievement. >> so nothing in effect apart from the fact they are vaguely talking and john kerry wanted to push talks forward but whatever
5:20 am
happens at the talks won't go anywhere unless somebody has a big stick beating both sides. >> i think when you look at the public attention in israel at the moment, it's 90% syria, 10% egypt, 0 on the palestinians. this is not an atmosphere of peace. you need this big stick and you need somebody to push the positions of both sides especially of the israeli side, very hard, the united states is busy, the u.s. is busy, the rest of the world, europe is having its troubles and the rest of the world is not interested. if you leave it to the sides it will never, ever happen. especially with politicians that we have at the moment.

and we speak to issues with borders it's much more difficult to find a line, an agreed line at this stage. if in the year 2000 prime minister barrack demanded 3% of the territory of the west bank and in 2008 prime minister demanded 6% i guess the demand, the israeli demand now will be for about 10-12% and 12% inside israel would be very difficult.
5:22 am
so the situation at the moment is more difficult than 20 years ago. >> reporter: how much is at stake for president obama's legacy? this is his second term, his last term. he is now said to john kerry go and start a process, but it's unlikely to make any progress even for a noble peace prize winning president like obama. >> i think the israeli palestinian conflict was much more from negligent on the middle eastern scene than 3, 4 years ago because the arab spring has created such a situation, for instance syria is so dominant and we leave a much stronger mark on the record of president obama than what we left with the palestinians.
