Palestine: Anatomy of an Abyss
Lecture by Mouin Rabbani at George Mason University
{{langos=='en'?('24/10/2017' | todate):('24/10/2017' | artodate)}} - issue 4.2

This lecture, presented by Mouin Rabbani, examines the present crisis of the Palestinian national movement in terms of its various domestic dimensions as well as external challenges. Rabbani offers a discussion of the prospects for Palestinian national reconciliation, the potential for renewed conflict with Israel, and analysis of President Trump's declared objective of pursuing "the ultimate deal.” The crises of both Fatah, Hamas, and the Palestinian Authority will be examined, particularly in light of recent initiatives to achieve agreements between rival Palestinian factions.
