Palestinian Politics After Arafat: A Failed National Movement?
Fri, October 10, 2008 • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM • Texas Union Theater 2.228
What happened during the past decade to the Palestinians in general, and to their national movement in particular, led to the internal and external failure. Externally, this failure was manifested in the disintegration of the regional and international status of the Palestinian national movement.
Concomitantly, the efforts to establish a Palestinian state and resolve the conflict reached a dead end because of the deep internal schism which had developed, and which is incompatible with national unity.
