An edited version of a May 22, 2020 briefing call with Saeb Erekat, the secretary general of the PLO’s Executive Committee, and one of the Palestinian leadership’s chief diplomats. For years, Dr. Erekat was the chief Palestinian negotiator with Israel, and in the eyes of many personifies the Palestinian commitment to a two-state peace accord with Israel.

This episode is an edited version of a May 7th briefing call, the third in APN’s series of briefing calls focusing on the Israeli government’s  intention to annex parts of the West Bank.

This briefing call examines how annexation could impact the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and its relations with Israel.

Our guest was Dr. Marwan Muasher, the vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Muasher served as foreign minister (2002–2004) and deputy prime minister (2004–2005) of Jordan, as well as several other ministerial positions in Jordan. He was the Kingdom’s ambassador to Washington and its first ambassador to Israel (1995-1996). Muasher has been thoroughly involved in Arab-Israeli peace efforts in the past and has been an agent for reform in Jordan and the Arab world.

Arkady Mazin is an expert on the Russian-speaking public in Israel. He is currently working on a book that among other topics examines attitudes among Israeli Russian speaking Jews toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In this episode, Mazin talks about what he depicts as an anomaly or a paradox. The two predictors for holding dovish views on this issue in Israeli society are secularism and high level of education. Israeli Jews from the former Soviet Union are much more secular than the overall population, and, on the average much better educated. Yet their views on Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians are more hawkish than those of the average Israeli.
