How COVID – and Israel’s Trump-brokered lovefest with Arab states – are affecting Palestinians
We ask: How do the Palestinians - and their leaders - feel about Israel’s ongoing series of agreements with Morocco and other Arab states? Has the coronavirus improved or worsened the Israeli military’s treatment of Palestinians?
We talk about whether Benjamin Netanyahu’s new challenge on the political right is removing the Palestinian issue from Israeli political discourse completely. Also discussed: Will the Palestinian Authority will ever hold elections? And can the incoming Biden administration even contemplate engaging with Israeli-Palestinian peace, with both sides in political disarray?
