Consequences of Gaza

In Le Monde diplomatique‘s February podcast, I talk to Middle East expert and deputy director of the French edition of the paper, Alain Gresh.

His article in this month’s edition focuses on the consequences of the Israeli action against Hamas, both for the participants and the wider region.

In the podcast he talks about the reactions of nations such as Iran and Turkey to the conflict and considers why Israel’s relations with the EU are more cordial than at any time since 1967. He also responds to my question about what we can tell about the Obama administration’s approach to the Middle East. Listen to the podcast by clicking here.
