To many supporters of Palestinian statehood, Israel is the main roadblock to independence. But Jonathan Schanzer, an expert on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, argues that the Palestinian Authority’s political dysfunction and corruption are the true threat to a Palestinian state. Schanzer’s exploration of internal Palestinian politics highlights the reforms necessary to bring the Palestinians peace, prosperity and stability.
State of Failure
Jonathan Schanzer
is the vice president for research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and the author of Hamas vs. Fatah. He previously worked at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, the Jewish Policy Center and the Middle East Forum.

"Jonathan Schanzer's account of the latent and then open civil war between the Palestinian Authority and the Fatah faction and Hamas is a long-overdue account of the importance of Palestinian politics on the politics of making peace."Jerusalem Post on Hamas vs. Fatah
