Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and Elizabeth Tsurkov (+972 Magazine, Global Voices)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt and Elizabeth discuss Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defense. Who won the latest round of violence, and will Israel end its blockade of Gaza? Elizabeth argues that it is in Netanyahu’s interest to keep Gaza separated from the West Bank in order to divide Palestinians. Turning to Israel’s domestic politics, why is Ehud Barak retiring from politics? Is Likud drifting even further to the right? Will Tzipi Livni’s new party be able to unite the center-left? Finally, Matt asks whether and how the United States can work with a Likud-dominated Israel towards peace.
