I began the program with reviewing some of the violence in Gaza that the mainstream media has been ignoring together with some background on the situation and speak briefly of my trip to Gaza in 2004 where I spoke with Palestinian psychiatrist, Eyad Sarraj.

I go from there to the resignation of Nikki Haley as the US (and Israel's) UN ambassador and how US Jewish organizations are in a state of shock, suggesting that Israel should have paid half her salary or she should have had to register as a foreign agent.

I move on to a NY Times story of how young Democrat candidates appear to be breaking with party's unconditional support for Israel and not the article notes a lightly publicized Pew poll that shows the Israel now tops Palestine in popularity among Americans by only 2%, down from 14% two years ago which may be the bigger story.

From there I move on to Kay Bailey Hutchison, Trump's NATO ambassador, threatening to destroy Russian missiles and finish with noting that Sunday was the 17th anniversary of the US attack on Afghanistan and the Taliban and that while civilians and Afghan military continue to be killed on a daily basis there are no prospects for negotiations to end the war.
