Philip Weiss talks about the opposing camps of the democratic party, one that’s close with the zionist Israel lobby, and the other, younger one that views the plight of the Palestinians as a civil rights issue echoing America’s own. Most American Jews support a two state solution and equal rights for Palestinians, says Weiss, so it may be hard for liberal zionists to continue winning political support in the future.
