5/25/18 Philip Weiss on the Gaza protests and the relocation of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

Philip Weiss returns to the show to discuss his recent trip to Israel and Palestine, where he attempted to see the opening of the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem and get as close to the Gaza border as possible. Weiss and Scott discuss the tragedy of the Israeli massacre of unarmed Palestinians, the history of Israel-Palestine diplomacy, whether there can be any sliver-lining found in Trump’s overt support for Israel. Weiss then discusses the changes he’s seen in the American Jewish community’s views towards Israel, which Weiss believes are reflected in generational differences. He then reviews the impact that Sheldon Adelson has had on Trump’s foreign policy and American diplomatic relations with Israel.
