Palestinians don’t see Joe Biden as a savior. Far from it. But the end of the demise of the Trump administration, the worse period ever in US-Palestinian relations, is viewed by many Palestinians as an opportunity to push the reset button not only on their relations with Washington but also on intra-Palestinian politics. Discussing Palestinian policy and the Biden administration is Khaled Elgindy, formerly with the Brookings Institute and now the Director of the Program on Palestine and Palestinian-Israeli Affairs at the Middle East Institute here in Washington. He is also the author of Blind Spot: America and the Palestinians, from Balfour to Trump. He has been a guest on episode #78 of PeaceCast in April 2019.
