THE SPIN ROOM | WIth Ami Kaufman | Guest: Former Israeli Ambassador to France, Avi Pazner | Thursday, January 17th 201943min
Part 1 The plan for peace between Israelis and Palestinians will reveal one day apparently by the Trump administration. According to Israel's channel 13, the plan will call for a sovereign Palestinian state in 90% of West Bank with its capital in 'most of the Arab neighborhood' of Jerusalem. Besides, Jerusalem is to be divided, with Israeli sovereignty over West Jerusalem and parts of East Jerusalem; in addition to the 'holy basin'. And Israeli annexation of major settlements and evacuation of illegal outposts. Part 2 The conversation continues with the theories of the details from the plan of U.S. President Donald Trump to bring peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Moving on, former IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz has released his first official video for his campaign with the slogan: "Israel before everything else". Also, recent polls show that the Likud party maintains the position of number one and largest party. With that, Labor party lawmakers jump ship amid growing distrust. Part 3 It's been a tough year for Women March whose leaders have been played by accusation of anti-Semitism. One of them is Tamika Mallory who appeared on national TV and surprisingly decided to stay in the ground and refused to condemn anti-Semitic and homophobia remarks made by Louis Farrakhan. So far, public group like Emily's List, Amnesty International and more have withdrawn their support for the march last week. How did they get to this and can Jewish women welcome into this environment? Part 4 U.S. Representative Steve King has been punished by his own party members for complaining in an interview to the New York Times that white supremacy and white nationalism have become offensive terms. Steve King said in response that he was simply misunderstood. Also, Senior administration officials told the New York Times that Trump privately said he wanted to withdraw from the NATO. The host of the Pod Complex, Rick Ungar, and Former Deputy Director of the U.S. Commerce Department, Chris Garcia discuss that.
