Palestine from Intifada to Statehood
Palestine, eclipsed by the Arab Spring, remains a flashpoint.
Can statehood lead to sovereignty, equality, and peace?
How will Palestine be impacted by the Arab revolutions?
A talk by Sharat G. Lin
The roots of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001 were not an autonomous rise in fundamentalism, but rather intractable U.S. policy towards Palestinians. Ten years later, in the context of momentous changes sweeping the Middle East, the Palestinian trajectory is changing as well. The long-term implications of a potential two-state solution and possible alternatives must be carefully considered.
Sharat G. Lin is president of the San Jose Peace and Justice Center. He writes on global political economy, the Middle East, labor migration, and public health, and has lived for many years in the Arab World.
