Deputy Speaker of the PLC: Hassan Khreisheh

Doctor Hassan Khreisheh is the Deputy Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Committee (PLC) under Mahmoud Abbas' Palestinian National Authority. Khreisheh is an independent, and holds views that are at times critical of both Fateh and Hamas. Khreisheh formerly served as the governor of the Tulkarem Region in the Northwest of the West bank during the height of the Second Intifada. He also has served on multiple investigative committees, among them a commission established to investigate the death of Hamas Cleric, Majd Barghouti, in 2008 while he was imprisoned by Fateh. My conversation with him covers these topics as well as Israeli land policy, modern Palestinian resistance to the Occupation, and attempts of reunification between Hamas and Fateh.
