Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and Yousef Munayyer (The Palestine Center)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt talks to Yousef about Obama’s upcoming trip to Israel, which will be his first as president. Matt wonders how the trip will affect Obama and Netanyahu’s tense relationship. Yousef worries that the Israeli public doesn’t actually support a two-state solution. How could the existence of a Palestinian state advance the interests of the US? And how did the Chuck Hagel hearings affect international opinion of America? Finally, Yousef and Matt consider how strongly the American public supports Israel.
