LISTEN: Netanyahu’s ‘Annexation Nation’ Is Ready to Strike Again

On today's show, Haaretz's diplomatic correspondent Noa Landau joins host Simon Spungin to discuss the fallout from U.S. President Donald Trump's peace plan, unveiled to much fanfare in Washington last week.

We discuss Prime Minister Netanyahu's indecent haste to claim that the Americans had given Israel the green light to annex its West Bank settlements – despite the Administration's insistence that this is not the case – as well as his own contribution to the plan: the possibility of stripping some Israeli Arabs of their citizenship and forcing them to live under Palestinian rule.

We also ask what Israel (and/or Netanyahu) stand to gain from diplomatic relations with Sudan and what has happened with those countries which have vowed to move their embassies to Jerusalem.
