The Arab Street Radio: Ghassan Khatib on future of Israel-Palestine peace
Former Palestinian official and now Birzeit University professor Ghassan Khatib guests on The Arab Street Arab radio show with host Ray Hanania.
The Arab Street Radio show is broadcast live in Detroit on WNZK AM 690 Radio on the 2nd Friday of each month at 8 am EST (Detroit time).
Ghassan Khatib is a lecturer of cultural studies and contemporary Arab studies at Birzeit University in the West Bank. He was previously the minister of labor and the minister of planning of the Palestinian Authority, as well as the director of its Government Media Center. Khatib was a member of the Palestinian delegation to the Madrid Conference in 1991 and the subsequent bilateral negotiations in Washington from 1991 to 1993. Khatib holds a doctorate in Middle East politics from the University of Durham and is the author of “Palestinian Politics and the Middle East Peace Process: Consensus and Competition in the Palestinian Negotiation Team.”
Ghassan Khatib and Ray Hanania discuss the collapse of the Oslo Peace Accords. What was the reason for its failure, the murder of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, the suicide bombings launched by Hamas, the weakness of the peace accord itself?
Ghassan Khatib argues that Israel’s refusal to suspend illegal settlement expansion during the Oslo Peace process, and Rabin murder by a disciple of Israeli fanatic Benjamin Netanyahu, who is now the prime minister of Apartheid Israel, are the primary causes of the failure of peace.
He also explores the impact of the Trump administration’s actions on Israeli-Palestinian relations, the turbulence that has overrun the Arab World from Syria, to Iraq to Yemen, and the bias of past U.S. Government administrations including by former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
