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

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.
