This week on MidEast News Brief we spend half the show on Israeli-Palestinian issues, specifically in relation to the Kushner peace plan.

Ep. 2 – Fatah’s Facebook, Christian Persecution, and SOTU

This week our pals over at Palwatch provide a report of the so-called “moderate” Palestinian faction Fatah’s Facebook activity, and well, let’s just say the results are terror-ifying. Also, Open Doors USA has come out with their yearly report on Christian persecution worldwide, and you can only imagine where countries in the Middle East rank. I mentioned last week that we’ll get into some anti-semitism in the good ol’ USA by our own elected leaders, which is beyond abhorrent. And Trump did talk some foreign policy at the state of the union so we, of course, will play some clips and touch on points there, plus more.
