Institute for Palestine Studies Senior Fellow Mouin Rabbani spoke to Palestine Square on developments on the ground in Palestine after his recent trip to the West Bank and Jerusalem.
“The Palestine question is not going to go away as a major regional and international issue. It is a cause which has maintained an existential hold on Arab identity. It is in my view also only a matter of time before the international community is compelled to focus on Palestine once again. It’s important to stress that this is not a particularly comforting prognosis if you go to some obscure village in the Hebron region which is being literally crushed under the weight of Israeli bulldozers and settler violence and reassure these people “I’m sure your issue will return to the regional and international agenda.”
