Netanyahu's Stance on Palestinian Statehood; Understanding "What ISIS Really Wants"

Following a resounding victory in Tuesday’s election, Benjamin Netanyahu will now serve a fourth term as Israel’s Prime Minister. The win came just a day after Netanyahu announced he would not support the establishment of a Palestinian state, a statement he later clarified in an interview with NPR's Morning Edition.

This hour, Middle East expert Jeremy Pressman joins us to weigh in on the election, and what it all means for the future of Israel’s relations with the U.S., Palestine, and beyond.

A little later, The Atlantic’s Greame Wood joins us along with a local Islamic scholar to discuss "what ISIS really wants". We’ll talk about Boko Haram’s recent pledge of allegiance to ISIS, along with U.S. efforts to end Islamic extremism.

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.

Event details:

Jeremy Pressman will be moderating a panel discussion called “The Future of Israeli-Palestinian Relations” on Thursday, March 26 at UConn’s Thomas J. Dodd Center. For more information, click here.
