12/21/20 Ramzy Baroud on the Plight of the Palestinians

Palestinian journalist Ramzy Baroud discusses a series of recent articles he’s written on the status of Israeli-Palestinian relations, and the long history that informs the situation today. It has now become clear, says Baroud, that the once-promised two-state solution is off the table. The Israeli government has realized that it can pretty much continue to expand its settlements into the dwindling Palestinian lands and keep oppressing its people, all with very little pushback in the international community or the mainstream media. The only realistic way forward will be to officially recognize a single state with full rights for Palestinians. Unfortunately Baroud says that Biden’s cabinet picks mostly hold terrible positions on Israel, and indeed Biden himself was known as one of the biggest Zionists in Washington before Trump came along. Baroud worries that little will change for the Palestinians under the next administration.
