NPR's Melissa Block talks with Samuel Lewis, former U.S. ambassador to Israel and current Senior Policy advisor to the Israel Policy Forum, about the fallout of Hamas leader Sheik Ahmed Yassin's assassination in the West Bank Monday. Lewis believes the killing will spur a new wave of violence, and that some of that violence may be aimed at Americans for perceived complicity in the death.
