Chuck Carlson analyzes the predictable endorsement by President Obama to Israel's "war of defense" against Gaza. Evidence shows that this latest round of destruction was started by Israel with the US media and the government unequivocally taking the side of Israel, claiming Hamas was the culprit. We include in our podcast an excellent analysis of the situation in Gaza and Palestine by the Jewish Voice for Peace group.
We review a bold letter sent by 15 leaders from mainline Christian Churches to members of Congress. The signers see a troubling and consistent pattern of disregard by the government of Israel for U.S. policies that support a just and lasting peace, particularly unbridled settlement construction in the West Bank. Chuck Carlson reviews the Zionist attacks against these church leaders.
