Sunday's Show (March 11)

This morning's show focused exclusively on the intricate relationship between Israel, America, and the Palestinians. We discussed nuclear tensions between Israel and Iran, the United States' alignment with Israel, Israel's complicated internal politics, the Palestinian non-violence movement, America's role in diplomacy, and Chris' panel provided their thoughts on what "You Should Know" about the Israel/Palestinian conflict. Joining Chris were:

Rula Jebreal (@rulajebreal), contributing writer at Newsweek.

Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, founder & president of The Israel Project. 

Leila Hilal, Middle East analyst at the New America Foundation. 

Jeremy Ben-Ami (@jeremybenami), founder & president of J Street.

Zev Chafets, founding managing editor at The Jerusalem Report and contributor at New York Times Magazine.

Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Schlomo Gazit, former Israel Defense Forces intelligence head, from Tel Aviv.

Larry Fontes: This was an especially powerful show and, for me, was quite impacting. I think many of us recognize this is a very complex issue with some powerful emotional and reality based perspectives

Auntie Sez: I simply cannot understand the furor about the "nuclear tensions" between Israel and Iran when only ONE of them has nukes, the one who has nukes is NOT a signatory to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty, and frankly, as an American, I'm getting ticked off that the US is apparently useless in any kind of humane resolution to the matter. At this stage I don't care if Iran has nukes. I wish that NOBODY had nukes

Frank-2058597:  I've only watched part of this so far, and I'm hoping it gets better, but ... The single most eloquent statement made in the first 30 minutes or so was Leila Hilal hanging her head in disbelief, exasperation and perhaps despair at the words spoken by Jennifer Mizrahi.  That really says it all. I guess I can't pretend to be "objective" -- the Israeli position is so extreme and so terrifyingly ridiculous that one really wonders if discussion is possible.

AustinGuy1: Please, don't let this be a trend toward one-issue shows.
