Scott talks to Ali Abunimah of the Electronic Intifada about Jared Kushners “Deal of the Century” and the history of negotiations between Israel and Palestine. Some supporters of Israel have claimed that Kushner’s deal is just giving away free money to the Palestinians, but Abunimah points out that all the hardships addressed in the proposed deal are caused by the United States and Israel in the first place. If Israel simply ended its occupation, the Palestinians would be far better off than even this deal would make them.
Discussed on the show:
- Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran, and the United States
- Alliance of the periphery
- Obstacle to Peace: The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
- Oslo Accords
