Ghassan Khatib and Ray Hanania discuss the collapse of the Oslo Peace Accords. What was the reason for its failure, the murder of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, the suicide bombings launched by Hamas, the weakness of the peace accord itself?

Ghassan Khatib argues that Israel’s refusal to suspend illegal settlement expansion during the Oslo Peace process, and Rabin murder by a disciple of Israeli fanatic Benjamin Netanyahu, who is now the prime minister of Apartheid Israel, are the primary causes of the failure of peace.

He also explores the impact of the Trump administration’s actions on Israeli-Palestinian relations, the turbulence that has overrun the Arab World from Syria, to Iraq to Yemen, and the bias of past U.S. Government administrations including by former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
