This Saturday on Melissa Harris-Perry, we’ll bring you the latest from the two unfolding international crises that shook the international community in tandem this week. 

We will have the latest on Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 that went down over rebel-held territory in Ukraine, including recent indications that Russian-backed separatists might be responsible for the crash.

Making the case

July 19, 2014

Host Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel will also discuss the geopolitical fallout between Russia and the west, and what effect this tragedy will have on the already-endangered U.S.-Russia relationship as the latest round of sanctions kicks in. Harris-Perry and her panel will also discuss developing reports that a substantial number of AIDS researchers and at least one American perished in the crash.

We will also break down Israel's new ground offensive into the Gaza Strip, the state of affairs in the Middle East, the role of the United States in this crisis, and what it is like to live in an area perpetually on the brink of war.
