The Israeli and American Politics of Islamic Jihad's Rocket Attacks on Israel

November 14, 2019  •  ClearCut with Michelle Makori / i24News

Despite the Egyptian-brokered ceasefire, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) continued to rain down hundreds of rockets on Israel, prompting an IDF response targeting PIJ locations and assets in Gaza. The point at which Israel seeks a ceasefire, rather than a larger-scale response remains a politically contentious decision for the prime minister, even more so during the current political stalemate. Matthew RJ Brodsky joins STRATFOR Middle East and North Africa analyst Ryan Bohl on i24News "ClearCut" with Michelle Makori for a wide-ranging discussion on the Israeli and U.S. political machinations that have come from the latest conflict between Israel and the PIJ in Gaza.

November 13, 2019  •  TRT World Live

November 11, 2019  •  ClearCut with Michelle Makori / i24News

The IAEA says it detected uranium particles at an undeclared site in Iran on the country's nuclear program in its latest report issued on Monday. "The agency detected natural uranium particles of anthropogenic origin at a location in Iran not declared to the agency," the report declared, backing up the Israeli assertion last year, which was based on the evidence it recovered from a site near Tehran. Matthew RJ Brodsky joins former U.S. Naval Intelligence Officer John Jordan on i24News "ClearCut" with Michelle Makori to discuss the ramifications of the find, along with the other layers of cheating Iran is engaged in on the nuclear file. Brodsky explains that the European response at this point resembles the three little pigs praising the strength of their straw house after the proverbial big bad wolf already blew it down.
