#157: Israel and the Biden Administration
A recording of a webinar with Yossi Alper, one of Israel’s leading strategic affairs analysts, addressing how the transition from Trump to Biden is viewed in Israel, how dealing with a Biden administration might alter Israeli government policies and priorities, and how Israel’s conservative government would adapt to a worldview diametrically opposed to Trump’s and very different from Netanyahu’s.
This webinar was a part of APN's series examining the Middle East policy impact of transitioning from the Trump administration to the Biden administration.

#155: Joe Biden and Palestinian Politics
Palestinians don’t see Joe Biden as a savior. Far from it. But the end of the demise of the Trump administration, the worse period ever in US-Palestinian relations, is viewed by many Palestinians as an opportunity to push the reset button not only on their relations with Washington but also on intra-Palestinian politics. Discussing Palestinian policy and the Biden administration is Khaled Elgindy, formerly with the Brookings Institute and now the Director of the Program on Palestine and Palestinian-Israeli Affairs at the Middle East Institute here in Washington. He is also the author of Blind Spot: America and the Palestinians, from Balfour to Trump. He has been a guest on episode #78 of PeaceCast in April 2019.

In this episode, Campbell discusses the reasons for UNRWA's current budgetary crisis, since the Trump administration defunded the agency, and expresses hope for re-funding UNRWA under the Biden administration.

Pro-peace Zionist talk
I’m new to the Zionism discussion. I’m also new to the Israel-Palestine issue. This podcast is starting to help me form my own identity as a liberal Zionist in the US whilst learning about the devastation and conflict occurring between the two parties.
