Virtual Briefing: Ramadan, the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, and the Netanyahu-Smotrich Government: Heading Towards an Inevitable Escalation?

On March 29 Mitvim hosted a public Zoom event regarding the political implications on Israel’s foreign affairs and the region’s stability following the latest escalation of the conflict, which may increase with the Ramadan celebrations. Against the backdrop of Ramadan celebrations and the potential escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, The Mitvim Institute’s experts discussed the roots of the sensitive situation from different perspectives. The panel emphasized that it is precisely the current government that may catalyze the opportunities of a political horizon based on the possibility of examining basic assumptions regarding the conflict in the Israeli street and creating international coalitions to promote cooperation. However, the nationalist scheme of the government may lead to fragmentation and the collapse of the Palestinian Authority.
