Prager U: Are Israeli Settlements the Barrier to Peace?

"If history is any indicator, Israel would be worse off" if it pulled out of the settlements.

In the wake of the recent UN resolution, orchestrated by Barack Obama, condemning Israeli settlements, perhaps now is a good time to revisit this video from Prager University that was first posted in October of last year.

It features renowned Harvard professor and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz answering the questions: Is Israel's policy of building civilian communities in the West Bank the reason there's no peace agreement with the Palestinians? Or would there still be no peace even if Israel removed all of its settlements and evicted Israeli settlers, as it did in Gaza in 2005?

Check out the short video above.
