The KR editors spoke to one of the most important historians of the Arab-Israeli conflict, Ilan Pappe, about recent and historic violence in Gaza and Palestine, the two-state solution, Israel's endgame, Hamas' perspective and goals as well as the most recent elections. Pappe is pessimistic: "Either Palestinians accept life in Bantustans or they will feel the strength of the military brutality if they resist."
