Is the debate on Israel changing among American Jews?The US Jewish community has become increasingly open about criticism towards Israel.
Over the last decade, more and more American Zionists are venturing beyond traditional community red lines when it comes to Israel.
The debate revolves around the occupation, settlements, Israeli foreign policy and the United States’ support for Israel.
What does this debate mean for the future of the Middle East, and does it go far enough?
In this episode of The Stream, we speak to Saar Szekely, contestant on the Israeli version of “Big Brother”; Dana Goldstein (@DanaGoldstein), fellow at The Nation Institute; and Daniel Levy, co-director of the Middle East Task Force at the New America Foundation.
