The event was self-described as follows: 

Morocco has become the latest Arab state during the administration of President Donald Trump to establish relations with Israel. As part of this agreement, the United States recognized Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara, a territory formerly ruled by Spain as a colony until 1975. Morocco has claimed Western Sahara, conquered by Spain in 1884, since Moroccan independence from France in 1956. Yet the Algerian-backed Frente Popular de Liberación de Saguía el Hamra y Río de Oro (POLISARIO Front) led a guerrilla war against Moroccan rule in Western Sahara from 1975 until a 1991 ceasefire administered by the United Nations. POLISARIO has sought an independent Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic for Western Sahara’s Sahrawi Arab population. Morocco, in contrast, has promoted an autonomy arrangement for what Morocco views as its southern province.

Did Trump make the right decision? What would be best for Western Sahara? Human rights lawyer and international security expert Irina Tsukerman, who has extensive experience in the Middle East and North Africa, will join show host Andrew E. Harrod to examine these issues.
