Scott is joined by Robert A. Pape to discuss the dangerously flawed assumptions behind Israel’s strategy in Gaza and with the Palestinians more broadly. Scott and Pape talk about how these same mistakes have been made numerous times in recent decades by the United States and Russia, always with the same bad results. They also touch on the difficulties the Israeli government would encounter if it attempted to take full control of the West Bank.
