Sheldon Richman joins the show to talk about Khaled Al Sabawi, and his attempt to provide current property titles to Palestinians on the West Bank, about the many abuses of the Palestinians at Israeli hands, including displacement through settlements on the West Bank and even targeted killing of civilians, both of which the Israeli government does with impunity. Richman explains that the Palestinian Authority is just an enforcer of these policies, and is often complicit in carrying them out. Finally, Scott and Sheldon discuss Western sympathy for the plight of the Palestinians and why it’s often lacking.
