Israel PLO Accord

White House Signing

The United States played a small, but vital role in the agreement reached between Israel and PLO. The agreement, called "Oslo I," was signed at the White House. Two years later, "Oslo II" was signed in Washington, as well. Six weeks after the signing of Oslo II, the Israeli participant, Prime Minitser Yitzhak Rabin, was assassinated by a Jewish zealot opposed to the peace agreement.
