On July 19th, we hosted Shibley Telhami for a briefing call on US-Palestinian relations.
Dr. Telhami is the Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.
You can find a recording of the entire hour we spent with Dr. Telhami on our web site here.
This version, edited down to about 30 minutes, includes two main themes
One is Shibley’s insightful analysis of the widening gap in values between American progressives – and not only progressives – and the ruling elite in Israel. Shibley brought this up in relation to the Nation-State Law that the Knesset passed the night before we spoke.
The second theme was an analysis of the Trump administration’s actions and thinking – if there is real thinking – regarding the Israel-Palestine question, peace efforts etc.
