We spend a good deal of time on This Week In Palestine exploring the power of the Israeli lobby because of the significant role it plays in the manipulation of Congress, the president, the media, and therefore the American people. Walter Hixson, Professor of History at Akron University, has written a new book, "Israel’s Armor: The Israeli Lobby and the First Generation of the Palestine conflict," that traces the roots of the Israeli lobby all the way back to the birth of the Zionist movement. In today's presentation, Professor Hixson explains and discusses the book's thesis.

Before that, we quote an article by Ramzy Baroud that takes on the pending so-called "deal of the century" authored by Jared Kushner, which is supposedly soon to be released. It appears to be dead on arrival. By now, it is perfectly clear that the "deal of the century" is not a peace plan, nor was it ever intended to be, despite what its chief architect and White House adviser Jared Kushner has been claiming. It is yet another American imperial undertaking driven by the misguided notion that it is in the best interest of the American people that Israel remains the regional hegemon and is enabled to swallow the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories.
