Israel in East Jerusalem; Gitmo and the Berrigans

What is it about the city of Jerusalem that makes Trump’s promise to move the U.S. embassy there so alarming? Zakaria Odeh describes what Israel has done in and to East Jerusalem and its Palestinian residents. Also, Frida Berrigan discusses her involvement in efforts to close Guantánamo in the context of her father’s activism and incarceration.
