Currently a professor of law at at the S. J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah, Amos Guiora is the former Commander of the Israel Defense Forces' School of Military Law. Before retiring from the IDF as a Lieutenant Colonel, he was also the Judge Advocate for the Navy and Home Front Command, as well as the Legal Adviser to the IDF's commander of the Gaza Strip, a military court judge and a military prosecutor. 

In this episode -- a longer episode than the usual -- he talks about the interplay between law, ethics, and politics in the context of Israel's occupation of the West Bank.

Brian Reeves, Director of External Relations at Shalom Achshav (Peace Now), APN’s Israeli sister-organization, talks about the new West Bank settlement scandal: a plan to build another settlement near the West Bank town of Bethlehem, which would complete a ring around Bethlehem and severely threaten a two-state solution. Brian also talks about broader trends in settlement activity in 2018 and about what Peace Now’s Settlement Watch Project is focusing on going into 2019.

Rashida Tlaib of Michigan is the first Palestinian-American woman to serve in Congress.

Public attention focused on a profanity that Tlaib used in reference to President Trump shortly after being sworn in to the 116th Congress. 

This episode, instead, focuses on the significance of Tlaib’s coming to Washington for the Palestinian-American community, a community that has never enjoyed much political clout in the U.S. 

Hanna Hanania, a prominent leader of the community, talks about what it means for Palestinian-American to have a progressive young woman in Congress who proudly asserts her Palestinian identity.

A new report by Israel's Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) analyzes Israel's relations with American Jews through the prism of Israeli national security.

The report is chiefly directed at Israeli policy makers, and therefore has so far only been published in Hebrew. The English translation will be published soon.

Dr. Michal Hatuel-Radushitzky, one of the report's authors, talks about the chief observations and recommendations of the report.
