The Nation’s Eric Alterman on Israel

The Nation‘s Eric Alterman discusses the challenges of countering the influence of conservative Israeli politics.


Preparing the populations of Palestine and Israel for peace is but one of the problems liberals face in trying to counter the influence of conservative policies in the Middle East. Eric Alterman joined others at the 92nd Street Y to discuss “Why we need a liberal Israel Lobby” and what role the media can play in framing the debate.
