Dr. Shibley Telhami, Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Development, Director of the University of Maryland Critical Issues Poll, and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, explains what to expect, and not expect, from US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s trip to the region this week; why another eruption of political violence is likely, unless Israeli occupation policies are addressed; what’s next for US-Egypt relations; the limits of the Abraham Accords in helping facilitate an Israeli-Palestinian peace process; shifting opinions among Democrats on the US-Israel relationship; how support for Palestinians may be linked in part to social justice movements, such as Black Lives Matter; and how the US-Israel relationship keeps the US engaged in the region.
