Foreign correspondent Eric Margolis joins Scott to discuss Israel-Palestine, the history of Palestinian suffering, how the future of the conflict might be resolved or exaggerated. Margolis recalls his mother’s reporting on Israel-Palestine, and the consequences and threats she endured, takes up the possibility that Trump’s overwhelming support for Israel could turn it into a bipartisan issue, and discusses the close relationship between Israel’s right wing and American Evangelists. Finally Scott and Margolis discuss the latest developments in the U.S.-Saudi war in Yemen.
