Annexation, Zionism and Democracy
Peter Beinart asked whether annexation is just a smokescreen or the prelude to apocalypse. His talk covered motives behind annexation, whether it would actually happen, and the receding possibility of a two-state solution – and, with it, hopes for a peace with justice for peoples in both Israel and Palestine.
In addition he addressed the nature of the new Likud-led coalition and Israel-Diaspora relations. He also covered US Jewish identity, the role of Israel in the US elections, racism within Israel, what to make of Blue and White reneging on its campaign pledges and how the pandemic has affected politics everywhere.
