Decades of failed peace talks have led nowhere. But do not lose hope just yet: join Robert Foster as he attempts to host the first ever Middle East Peace Raps, using rhyme and reason to bring together Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu, and a representative of Hamas. We investigate the key arguments, counter-arguments, ad-hominems from both sides. But the picture would not be complete without a thorough discussion of “America’s last taboo,” as Edward Said once referred to it: the U.S.’s role as Israel’s best (and only) buddy in the world (OK, together with Australia). Featuring special cameos from prominent American Jewish scholar Dr. Norman Finkelstein and Palestinian rap legends DAM.
