Philip Weiss, investigative journalist and author of the blog MondoWeiss, discusses the group of Israeli Rabbis advocating against leasing property to non-Jews (including Israeli Arab citizens); the end of the halfhearted US push for a West Bank settlement freeze; why the US can’t be an honest Israeli/Palestinian broker while Dennis Ross is more influential than George Mitchell; and why US Mideast policy won’t change while pro-Zionist American Jews remain empowered, outspoken and free from media scrutiny.
