Occupation and Cooperation: Hani Masri

I spoke with Hani Masri for the second time on CrossTalk on July 28 in his Ramallah office. Masri is an independent columnist for several Middle East newspapers, and is the General Director the Palestine Media Research and Studies Centre - Badael. Masri spoke on Palestinian politics, the resistance to Israeli occupation, and the issue of cooperation between the Israeli and Palestinian governments and security administrations. Masri believes that the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza must be met with every form of peaceful, popular resistance. Masri sees the current cooperation between the Israeli and Palestinian governments as merely a "beautification" of occupation.

For an analytical summation of my interviews with Hani Masri as well as other Palestinian thinkers, activists, and statesmen, please see "The Resistance."
