In Part One of the debate, former Israeli Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben Ami addresses the question of the origin of the "state of Israel" and how it came into being. Questions such as the transfer of the local population is discussed, and the revisionist narrative of what occurred is briefly juxtaposed against the traditional narrative. Shlomo Ben Ami, an influential member of the Rabin government, continues on to point out the lack of definition, or what he termed "destructive ambiguity" at Oslo, due to which a series of future breakdowns in the peace process became almost inevitable.
