Recently, Palestinian leaders procured Covid vaccines from Russia but quickly turned around and blamed Israel for not sending some of their own supply of vaccines. Back with us today is Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis. He looks at who is responsible for healthcare in the Palestinian territories and posits that the vaccine controversy may be pointing to a bigger picture. Now that President Trump is no longer on the world scene, there is a push to solidify Palestinian statehood and isolate Israel.
China is positioning itself in various arenas to become the world's biggest superpower and thus de facto leader on the world stage. Retired U.S. Navy Intelligence Captain James Fanell is back with us today from his home in Switzerland to lend his geopolitical expertise. He looks at the disingenuous words coming from Chinese leadership about how they want unity and peace, but their actions say something completely different. Under President Trump, we were attempting to stay even with China, but with the new Biden administration, the fear is we will lose any tactical advantage we once had. From a military buildup that is vastly outpacing the U.S. to their efforts at information warfare online, China is set to surpass the U.S. as the world's most dominant superpower.
The United States has a new President and he gave a pretty standard speech at his inauguration. On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve look at President Joe Biden's calls for unity and what that really means for America. Each ideological side has completely different visions for our country and completely different worldviews, making unity all but impossible. Will there be an allowance for “people to have room to disagree” like was mentioned in the speech? Or will platforms and internet service providers continue their assault on free speech? Interesting times are ahead. Stay tuned tomorrow for John's analysis of how we got here and how we move forward.
While the U.S. is swaying back and forth over what administration will occupy the White House in January, countries in the Middle East aren't waiting around.

There's a marked difference between a Trump and a Biden administration when it comes to how to handle Iran. With so-called official sources calling Biden the winner, Gulf States in the Middle East are forming alliances with Israel to fight against Iran should help not materialize from Western countries or from the UN.
