Palestinian-Israeli politician on the future for both sides and America’s role

There is a small population of Palestinians and Arabs, about 20%, who are Israeli citizens and have all the rights of the country. That includes political leaders. Sami Abu Shehahdeh is a former member of Israel’s parliament, the Knesset and chairman of the Balad Party. This party represents the interests of Palestinians and Arab Israelis. Host Marco Werman spoke with Shehadeh at his office in Jaffa about the current situation in Gaza and what it means for the future of both sides in this war.
