VIDEO: Saree Makdisi’s insightful perspective on the Hamas-Fatah unity deal 28Apr11 April 30, 2011

Democracy Now -  28 April 2011

“The rival Palestinian political organizations, Fatah and Hamas, have reached an agreement to end a nearly five-year internal schism, form an interim government, and hold a general election within a year. The two sides have been locked in a bitter conflict since Fatah and the Bush administration tried to overthrow Gaza’s Hamas-led government in 2006 after Hamas won Palestinian national elections. Israel and the United States say they’ll reject any peace talks with a Palestinian government that includes Hamas. We speak with Saree Makdisi, Professor of English and Comparative Literature at UCLA and the author of several books including ‘Palestine Inside Out: An Everyday Occupation.’
