May 24, 2021 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET
The roots of the conflict between Israel and Palestine are generations old. Yet, the ongoing clashes between Israeli police and Palestinians quickly escalated this past week, with over 200 killed. Why has the violence ramped up so quickly and what hope is there for de-escalation? How do domestic politics play into the recent violence? Tune in on Monday, May 24th at 12 PM ET when we discuss this event with Dr. Michael Koplow, Policy Director of Israel Policy Forum.
