US, Israel & the Trump Plan
Date and time: Wednesday, July 15, 2020, 8:30 to 10 pm Israel Daylight Time (UTC+3) | 6:30 to 8 pm British Summer Time (UTC+1)
Paul Rogers will present his analysis of the current US/ Israel plan for the future of Israel and Palestine.
Why is Donald Trump proposing this plan, which most analysts believe is advantageous to Israel and problematic for Palestinians?
- Do the Palestinians have any real influence on the matter?
- To what extent is the Israeli position affected by demographic factors and is there support within Israel for annexing the whole of the West Bank?
- What about the status of Jerusalem?
- If Trump isn’t returned in November, how will that alter the situation?
