Featuring David Wurmser and Alex Traiman

On Wednesday, July 1st Israeli lawmakers were supposed to vote on whether or not to extend Israeli sovereignty over certain communities in Judea and Samaria, and possibly, the Jordan Valley. Many of Israel’s critics on the left have argued that this is going to create an Israeli “Apartheid state”, will isolate Israel in the community of nations, will open the door for international sanctions against Israel will lead to the collapse of the two-state solution. And critics on the right have argued that since Israel is only extending sovereignty over 30 percent of Judea and Samaria.

Here to discuss these critically important issues and more are Alex Traiman and David Wurmser.
