Fateh and Hamas: a Decade of Love-Hate Relations

Dr. Khalil Shikaki, Senior Fellow at the Crown Center and Director of the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah

Dr. Khalil Shikaki will review the recent history of political Islam in Palestine in the period after the 1967 war and how it was perceived by the nationalists. The focus will be on the last decade, one in which Hamas played a critical role in Palestinian domestic politics and relations with Israel, the integration of Hamas into the Palestinian political system in 2005-06, the violent takeover of the Gaza Strip, and the future of reconciliation.
