Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. Benjamin Netanyahu won re election for Prime Minister in convincing fashion. Some rhetoric from Bibi during the homestretch of the election warned of the large number of Arab Israelis heading to the polls. He also made it clear that he has no intention of taking part in a 2 state solution, unlike his previous promises of ending the occupation. Cenk talks about the implications of Netanyahu’s win and his declarations to never work toward peace with the Palestinians and Arab population. With this promise, the possibility of the boycott Israel movement becomes more of a reality in the future. Cenk talks about how this may force the rest of the world to come down harder on Israel and potentially sway them towards a peaceful approach.
