Israel’s Goal Is to Kill Palestine, Not Palestinians. Listen to Amira Hass

'The violence perpetrated in the West Bank by Israel and the settlers has just one purpose: to erase the Palestinian national identity.' LISTEN FREE

An Israeli settler walks past a Star of David graffiti on the door of a closed Palestinian shop in the Jewish settlement area of the West Bank city of Hebron in 2010.

On today's show:

Killing Palestinians isn’t Israel’s goal. Killing Palestine is. Listen

Host Simon Spungin is joined by Haaretz's Palestinian affairs commentator, Amira Hass, who just returned from a week in the West Bank city of Hebron, where she saw how Israel is implementing its decades-long plan to eradicate Palestinian nationhood and identity.

We also discuss Israel's creeping annexation of the Jordan Valley, the tense relationship between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority and - for comic relief - the chances of President Donald Trump's peace plan bearing fruit.
