"Any part of the Middle East could, if a match is dropped in the right place, could lead to an intense explosion. There are nuclear weapons involved; Israel has 200 of them."

– Richard Silverstein, author of progressive blog Tikun Olam, on what he believes is the most right-wing administration regarding Israel in U.S. history, and the most frightening time since he's been blogging on these issues

Obama's Break with Israel's Settler Expansion Too Little, Too Late

MP3 Interview with Richard Silverstein, author of progressive blog Tikun Olam, conducted by Scott Harris

settler

The Obama administration’s decision not to issue a veto on a Dec. 23 United Nations Security Council resolution that condemned Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian West Bank and East Jerusalem set off a firestorm in the U.S. and Israel. The U.S. abstained, allowing the Security Council resolution to pass with 14 votes. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasted President Barack Obama, accusing him of a "shameful ambush" at the United Nations. Netanyahu was joined by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, who also criticized the UN resolution, and stated that the Palestinians would no longer have a platform at the UN when he took office.  Story continues

Trump and Cabinet Nominees Pose a Grave Threat to Civil Liberties

MP3 Interview with Chip Gibbons, policy and legislative counsel with the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, conducted by Scott Harris

cabinet

Throughout the 2016 presidential election campaign, real estate billionaire Donald Trump showed his contempt for standard political rhetoric, and instead bluntly attacked conventional bipartisan views on the need to uphold human rights, international law and freedom of the press. Trump laid out an agenda that drew applause from his mostly white, right-wing supporters, but provoked concern among civil libertarians about a Trump presidency that would be autocratic, and employ repressive measures to intimidate his many opponents.  Story continues

Rising Ocean Temperatures and Climate Change Bleaching and Killing Earth's Vital Coral Reefs

MP3 Interview with Steve Palumbi, professor in Marine Sciences at Stanford University, director of the Hopkins Marine Station and senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

coral

Coral reefs worldwide have been experiencing some of the most visible signs of climate change, as coral formations struggle to adapt to warmer ocean water. A recent bleaching event devastated the northern area of the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia. Corals are an extremely important part of their ecosystems, as they are home to a great diversity of fish that provide food for other species, including humans. Due to bleaching events and other problems, scientists estimate that coral populations today are only 30 to 50 percent of what they were a century ago.  Story continues
