Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and Gil Troy (McGill UniversityOpen ZionMoynihan's Moment)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt and Gil discuss the surprising success of the Yesh Atid party in Israel’s elections. Matt is struck by how little attention was paid to the peace process. Did Netanyahu’s meddling in the US presidential election hurt him at home? How will the new coalition affect relations with the Palestinians? Gil describes his most optimistic scenario for a two-state solution, and argues that rhetorical delegitimization of Israel is damaging the peace process. Matt counters that in the US, neoconservatives are blurring the line between criticism and delegitimization in their attacks on Chuck Hagel.
