Diplomacy in Jerusalem, death in Gaza

Hosted by  • 

Split screen TV coverage shocked the world: a diplomatic celebration simultaneous with a military massacre. As always, the context is much more complicated than the immediate facts on the ground. Is it all about short-term political gain at the expense of the “peace process?” Warren talks to an Israeli columnist, an American diplomat and a friend of the Palestinians. Will there be a political price to pay--especially if support for Israel becomes a partisan issue separating Democrats from Republicans in the United States?”
