Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Israel, Palestine, and the USA: How Many States, How Many Partners?

Israel, Palestine, and the USA: How Many States, How Many Partners?

  • June 18, 2018


In the latest episode of FPRI’s new podcast series, The BackChannel, host Ron Granieri welcomes Templeton Fellow Dominic Tierney, Director of FPRI’s Program on the Middle East Tally Helfont, and special guest FPRI Fox Fellow Joshua Krasna to discuss the complex relationship between the United States, Israel, and the Palestinian Authority. Continuing in the FPRI tradition of analyzing contemporary geopolitics through the lens of history, geography, and culture, Granieri guides a conversation that contextualizes current debates over Israel’s borders, the placement of the American Embassy, and especially the origins, crisis, and ultimate fate of the two-state solution. Throughout the discussion, the participants consider not only American, Israeli, and Palestinian perspectives, but also the roles of other regional powers from Iran to Saudi Arabia, emphasizing how that wider view both deepens our understanding of the current situation and helps us to understand the possibilities for the future.
