A Partner for Peace?

AJE’s Riz Khan speaks with Uri Davis, the first Israeli Jew to become a member of the Fatah Revolutionary Council, and Gil Hoffman, the chief political correspondent and analyst for The Jerusalem Post.

The dilemma over settlements in East Jerusalem has created a stalemate in the Middle East peace process, further straining the relationship between Israel and its closest ally, the US.

The Obama administration’s repeated calls for a freeze of all new settlements have been consistently rebuffed by Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, and his right-wing coalition.

Can the Netanyahu government withstand the pressure to move in opposite directions: Those policies demanded by Washington, and those desired by his coalition partners? Can any of the current Israeli leaders – including Tzipi Livni, the Kadima leader, or Ehud Barak, the Labour leader – make the concessions that allow the peace process to move forward?
