Hamas is a Palestinian group based in the Gaza Strip. It has a political wing and an armed wing. Both are actively struggling for Palestinian independence.
Founded in 1987, Hamas has been a counter group to the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and has been internationally shunned as a terrorist organization because its military wing periodically attacks Israel and its citizens.
Violence between Israel and the Palestinians keeps flaring up. Negotiations for a permanent peace have so far failed to yield a result. Can there ever be an end to the Mideast conflict? Guests: Shani Rozanes (DW), Alan Posener (Die Welt), Hassan Khader (Writer and Journalist)
