03/15/11 – Scott McConnell – The Scott Horton Show

by | Mar 15, 2011 | Interviews

American Conservative magazine editor Scott McConnell discusses his revisiting of the Camp David Accords in light of Egypt’s new government that no longer guarantees friendly relations with Israel; how Carter and Brzezinski failed, despite a sincere effort, to achieve a comprehensive Mideast peace agreement and a Palestinian state; how the Israel lobby’s power waxes and wanes according to the election cycle; the US government’s chronic lack of resolve in risking a serious rift with Israel in order to break her diplomatic intransigence; how the lobby’s growth has been mirrored by a strengthened and increasingly well-informed opposition; and why, despite large numbers of settlements in the West Bank, a 2-state solution remains possible but difficult.
