8/20/18 Simone Chun on the Korean Peace Process

Korea analyst Simone Chun comes on the show for an update on the Korean peace process. As usual, bipartisan opposition to Trump looms large, even with respect to policies that should have universal popularity, like peace on the Korean Peninsula. Chun explains how the media continue to ignore the fact that the negotiations are really led by Korean leaders, and the Trump mostly just refuses to put the kibosh on the talks, the way previous American presidents have. They probably want to do this so that they can stir up opposition to peace, with the ultimate goal of keeping our troops there (forever). Chun also discusses the tragic family separation that’s a byproduct of a divided Korea.

Discussed on the show:

Simone Chun is a member of the Korea Policy Institute and the Korea Peace Network, and is on the steering committee for the Alliance of Scholars Concerned about Korea. Read her work at Common Dreams.

8/13/18 Phil Weiss on American Jewish Support for Israel

Phil Weiss of Mondoweiss.net talks Israeli occupation of Palestine and why so many American Jews, particularly on the political left, are willing to go along with it. In large part, he explains, it’s because the collective memory of Jewish persecution is too raw to conceive of Israel as an aggressor. There’s also a lot of influence from the Israel lobby in the democratic party, so average voters just toe the line. Weiss sees reason for optimism in Trump’s presidency, however, because it may allow liberals to credibly oppose his policies in support of Israel.

8/10/18 Sheldon Richman on Palestinian Property Rights

Sheldon Richman joins the show to talk about Khaled Al Sabawi, and his attempt to provide current property titles to Palestinians on the West Bank, the many abuses of the Palestinians at Israeli hands, including displacement through settlements on the West Bank and even targeted killing of civilians, both of which the Israeli government does with impunity. Richman explains that the Palestinian Authority is just an enforcer of these policies, and is often complicit in carrying them out. Finally, Scott and Sheldon discuss Western sympathy for the plight of the Palestinians and why it’s often lacking.
