We discuss the current crisis about Ukraine, with Prof. Joseph Gerson. President of the Campaign for Peace, Disarmament and Common Security, Vice-President of the International Peace Bureau, Co-chair of the Committee for a Sane U.S.-China Policy, and Co-Convener of the international Peace and Planet Network. Russia has moved 100,000 troops to its Ukrainian border, and there are fears about invasion. We discuss the history of Russia's actions, and their particular feelings about Ukraine and NATO.
We talk with Prof. Jonathan Sarna, University Professor and the Joseph H. & Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History and Director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University about the rise in antisemitism in the US and elsewhere. This is in the context of the recent hostage taking in Texas. What drives this antisemitism?
