Your Call 010609 How are Israelis responding to the bloodshed in Gaza?

How are progressive Israelis holding their government accountable for the air strikes and ground invasion in Gaza? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the response to the siege of Gaza. With Israeli troops now on the ground and more than 550 Palestinians dead, where is Israel's peace movement? And what role do progressives here in the U.S. have in changing the conversation in Israel and in changing policy within the incoming Obama administration? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar.

Guests: Miko Peled, Israeli peace activist living in the U.S.

Gideon Levy, Ha'aretz reporter

Neve Gordon, chair of the Department of Politics and Government at Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, and author of the book, Israel's Occupation.

I think Obama should pressure Israel to stop its racist policy, return stolen land to the Palestinians who own it and push to completion of a 2 state solution. Further, I think we citizens of the US should demand that no more of our tax money go to weapons for Israel.

I am worried that none of this will happen. Obama haschosen Rahm Emmanuel as is chief of staff and from what I've read Emmanuel is a passionate supporter of Israel even serving in its army
