In this ILTV interview, Dan Diker, president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, provides insights into the brewing crisis in U.S.-Israel relations. The discussion focuses on the U.S.’s condemnation of Israeli settlement policies and the reinstatement of a research boycott beyond Israel’s 1967 borders. Diker also addresses the accusation of antisemitism, which was made by Republican Senator Ted Cruz, and examines whether the Biden administration’s actions align with the BDS movement. Furthermore, the interview explores Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming trip to China and the potential impact on his relationship with Washington.
