Amb. Zvi Mazel on the 'Truth About Palestine'28 May 2023
Ambassador Zvi Mazel joins VOI's Josh Hasten to talk about Palestinian statehood.
The veteran Israeli diplomat who held posts in Sweden, Egypt and Romania -- and who is currently a fellow at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs -- says that never in history was there a state called "Palestine." Yet, he says, the world continues to apply pressure on Israel to create such an entity, even if it would endanger the security of the Jewish state. Mazel believes that a concerted effort must be made to expose historical facts and acknowledge that the Palestinians have repeatedly declined statehood, with their true goal being the destruction of Israel.
