Posted on Jul 27, 2014

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss growing violence in the West Bank as casualties in Gaza continue to rise. What is Israel’s right to self-defense while it “keeps people without basic human rights?” Scheer asks.

Rich Lowry of the National Review says “Israel would be delighted to have Switzerland in Gaza, but that’s not what Hamas is all about.”

In Ukraine, evidence mounts that Russia is arming and/or shelling separatists, and the downing of Flight 17 should trigger talks, according to Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation. Debatable court rulings over Obamacare. Who is the real Paul Ryan? Is he really a kindler, gentler conservative?

Listen to the show here.
