The authors reflect on the possibility of Palestinian political forgiveness on the part of both Palestine and Israel. They discuss the concept of political forgiveness, as well as reasons for taking feelings out of the account of political forgiveness. They claim that a Palestinian agent who has been wronged by an Israeli is the presumption of Palestinian political forgiveness. They argue that the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) could satisfy the basic conditions for the possibility of Palestinian forgiveness.
