Israel and the Palestinians: An impossible peace process?

Our guest is Khalil Tafakji, director of the cartography department at the Jerusalem-based Arab Studies Society. He is also a former member of the Palestinian peace delegation and the author of a new book which examines the geographical extent of Israeli colonies in the occupied West Bank. He tells us why he thinks the US “deal of the century” is nothing more than the realisation of a vision shared by both left and right-wing Israeli leaders since 1996. He also tells us why he believes Benjamin Netanyahu’s ultimate plan is to evict Palestinians from the West Bank.
