On today’s show, Josh interviews Dan Diker Project Director of the Program to Counter BDS Political Warfare at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA). Diker is also a Fellow at the Institute of Counter-Terrorism, IDC Herzliya. Diker discusses the current Middle East realities 100 years after the signing of the Sykes-Picot agreement which essentially divided up the Middle East territory between the British and French without taking the realities on the ground into account. Ironically in this day and age, the same ignorant and stubborn mentality exists in the West, resulting in the failed Arab Spring, and an unrealistic Israeli/Arab peace initiative. A JCPA conference examining Sykes-Picot at 100 will be held in Jerusalem this Wednesday.
