Things are changing quickly by the day, and the pictures coming out of Gaza are devastating (nearly 30 children killed...need I say more?) but here are some good pieces about the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict that help provide a context to what seems like an endless back and forth between Hamas and Israel (as well as relate it to what's going on in the West Bank)
Democracy Now!- Gaza Debate with Noura Erakat, Palestinian human rights attorney, and Joshua Hantman, senior advisor to Israel's ambassador to the US
On Point with Tom Ashbrook- Israel, Palestine, and A Region on Edge discussion with Michele Dunne, senior associate in the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace’s Middle East Program, Rashid Khalidi, professor of Modern Arab studies at Columbia University, Alan Elsner, vice president for communications at J Street, and Nicholas Burns, professor in international relations at the Harvard Kennedy School.
The Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd- US Intervention May No Longer Work in Israel with Yousef Munayyer
This Week (ABC News)- interview with Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer
All In with Chris Hayes- Chris Hayes’s commentary on Israel and Hamas
And lastly, a list I was absolutely thrilled to discover: a list of female journalists, advocates, and other voices reporting on Israel and Palestine on FP Interrupted. Many of these individuals serve as inspiration to me in terms of producing this blog and some of my other work, so I highly recommend checking out this list for a bit of a different perspective.
