“The American Love Affair with Israel is Coming to a Grinding Halt…”

Thu June 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

“The American Love Affair with Israel is Coming to a Grinding Halt. Here’s Why.” with Phil Weiss & also featuring Michael Arria, Mondoweiss U.S. correspondent

This year has seen unprecedented daylight between the U.S. and Israel. Joe Biden had the gall to disinvite Benjamin Netanyahu from Washington, and major Jewish/Zionist groups were openly critical of the prime minister for the same reason, his attempted judicial reforms. (We’ve come a little way since the official silence over the USS Liberty attack on this day in 1967.) Phil Weiss and Michael Arria discuss the domestic causes for the shift: the role of the progressive left and the discomfort of the Jewish community with the demands of the Israel lobby.

Phil Weiss is a longtime writer, now senior editor of a website on Israel/Palestine that he started in 2006, Mondoweiss.net. He has published two books and numerous articles and is now writing music. He was born in Boston and lives in the Hudson Valley, New York.
