In this episode of Occupied Thoughts podcast, FMEP’s Lara Friedman speaks with preeminent journalist Dalia Hatuqa about Palestinian domestic politics, this week’s normalization “summit” in the Negev, and the long-feared/long-predicted escalation of tensions/violence in the entire area between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, coinciding with Ramadan, Easter, and Passover, which many fear will turn into an even bloodier re-play of the events of summer 2021.
