Einat Wilf: ‘For peace to happen, Palestinian identity needs to be rewired’ | Ellie Cohanim

In this episode, Ellie Cohanim sits down with the author and former Israeli Parliament member.

The two discuss the central thesis of Wilf’s latest book “The War of Return”—namely, that Palestinian intransigence and national identity built on the so-called “Right of Return” is at the core of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. They further delve into UNWRA’s role in fueling this conflict, the rising anti-Semitism, and policy prescriptions for solving a century-old conflict.
