Today we discuss the current state of Palestinian leadership and how Palestinians are contending with multiple layers of authoritarian rule (Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and Hamas). What are the challenges to Palestinian liberation? What roles - positive and negative - do the Palestinian Authority and Hamas play? What role does Palestinian civil society play in mobilizing against Israel and the PA? What can Palestinian resistance to Israel look like? What is behind Hamas’s rise in popularity since the most recent escalation with Israel? What is the status of the uprising against the PA and how is it part of a larger struggle? Lara Friedman of the Foundation for Middle East Peace leads the discussion with Tareq Baconi (Crisis Group) and Inès Abdel Razek (Palestine Institute for Public Diplomacy).
