Middle East politics with Prof. Amos Guiora

On this episode of the Voices of Reason podcast, Amy Donaldson and Jasen Lee are talking Middle East politics with University of Utah law professor Amos Guiora. He teaches Criminal Procedure, International Law, Global Perspectives on Counterterrorism and Religion and Terrorism. He is also the author of the book, The Crime of Complicity, the Bystander in the Holocaust.

Following President Donald Trump’s declaration that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, unrest and anxiety have risen in the Middle East. Prof. Guiora offers some explanation and thoughts on the situation speaking directly from Israel. We also discuss the possibility of changes to U.S. law statutes to potentially hold bystanders legally liable for failing to act when observing the commission of violent crime.
