Your Call: Rethinking the politics of Israel-Palestine

May 2, 2016

On the May 2nd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the prospects for a just peace in Israel and Palestine.

France is planning to hold a summit to restart the peace process, but critics say the expansion of settlements, Israel’s shift to the right, and unconditional US support for Israeli policies has diminished the prospect of an independent, viable Palestinian state. The US Senate is urging President Obama to give Israel the largest military package in the US history. So what’s next?  Join the conversation, on the next Your call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Zeev Maoz, distinguished Professor of political science at UC Davis

Ilan Pappe, professor of history and the director of the European Centre for Palestine Studies at the University of Exeter
