Yishai is joined by Walid Shantur, an Arab American whose family hails from a village near Ramallah, that Yishai met while on tour in Ithaca, New York. They discuss seeing eye to eye on a statehood solution in Israel and how Israel already has a government and infrastructure to support both Jews and Arabs. They discuss the affect and ramifications of the Arab Spring to Arabs in Israel and end by talking about the role of the US in the Middle East and how Americans truly do not understand the region.
