Mustafa_barghouthiMustafa Barghouti joins us to mark the one-year anniversary of the last Gaza War, take stock of how it’s changed politics internationally, and among Palestinians, and discuss the path forward to a just peace in the Middle East.But first: European negotiators are digging in over the crisis in Greece — will the left-wing Syriza government wind up accepting exactly the kind of austerity measures it campaigned against? And if not – what moves does it have left?
