M. A. Muqtedar Khan, PhD, MBA Biography

Title:
Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Delaware
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“Hamas’ victory is not just a negative vote against the PA; just as Israelis turned to Ariel Sharon after the failure of the peace process in 2001, the Palestinians, too, have now turned toward Hamas after the failure of the road map to peace in search of another alternative. The road map has been such a failure that Israel under Sharon had already abandoned it, to pursue a unilateral agenda of separation by withdrawing from Gaza and building a wall between the two populations in the West Bank.”
