Israel/Palestine has always been a hot-button issue in America and yet oddly one of the only issues that Republicans and Democrats seem to have the same stance on–Israel is our friend and we need to support Israel above all else. It’s the “above all else” part of that blanket support that worries many, including Matt Duss, who has been fighting for peace and common sense resolutions for a very long time.

Duss was part of the team of experts brought together to create the DNC platform, he is also responsible for opening my eyes to the plight of Palestinians and bringing me on a life altering trip to Israel and Palestine in 2015. He drops a lot of insight in our discussion, so you may want to press rewind a few times and allow it all to sink in.
