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.
