It is almost 50 years since the Six-Day War. The end of those hostilities witnessed the Israeli occupation of former Palestinian territories in the West Bank and Gaza, and the displacement of 300,000 Palestinian citizens. After half a century of devastating regional conflicts a resolution to the situation appears no closer. Pioneering human rights lawyer Raja Shehadeh asks: What does Israel have to fear from a lasting peace?
