Alice Rothchild, M.D. is author of the book 'Broken Promises, Broken Dreams, Stories of Jewish and Palestinian Trauma and Resistance'.
We discuss the political side of the humanitarian crisis in Palestine, noting the power of the press and the influence of the settler movement. Powerful political figures have been supporting the current government, funding the settler movement, pointing to religious entitlement over land that has been in dispute for decades.
