A timely critical discourse study of the linguistics of UN resolutions and “peace talks” on the Palestine Question, this book examines the role of UN and peace discourse in the realities of the prolonged Israel/Palestine problem. Using critical discourse analysis (CDA), the book seeks to find if such UN and ‘peace’ discourses are bona fide and practical and accordingly whether they have contributed and, if so, in what ways and to what extent to the protracted status quo, and the abortive attempts of years of negotiations. The book endeavours in particular to find if such resolutions and talks are linguistically structured to contribute to such a deadlock. The book is expected to make us, rulers and ruled, far conscious of the linguistic character of social injustice; of domination in its linguistic forms, and of the constitutive role of those linguistic forms in either the reproduction or transformation of the status quo. As such, besides those interested or those not well-versed in the realities of the Arab-Israeli conflict as shaped and perpetuated by discourse, this work can be of great interest to CDA practitioners and students of language, politics and communication as well.
