3/28/24 Trita Parsi: The Democrats are Not Serious About Reining In Israel

Download Episode.

Scott talks with Trita Parsi about the hollowness of Biden’s efforts to improve things in Gaza. They start with the Administration’s ridiculous framing, which seeks to admit that there are distasteful aspects of Israel’s Gaza campaign, but then to blame those aspects solely on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. They also talk about how the war is affecting Democratic voters and the risk that this war will expand to southern Lebanon.

Discussed on the show:

  • “The US is trying to force the Israeli government’s collapse” (Al Jazeera)
  • “Israel Abandons Its Tortured Soldiers Too” (Substack)
  • “U.S. Support for Israel’s War Has Become Indefensible” (The Atlantic)

Trita Parsi is the Executive Vice President of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft and the author of Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran and the Triumph of Diplomacy. Parsi is the recipient of the 2010 Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order. Follow him on Twitter @tparsi.
