Losing Religion of Middle East Peace

Hosted by

The Middle East Peace process is a “false religion” according to a veteran Washington diplomat who says he is no longer a true believer.  But, he says, President Obama is, along with Rahm Emanuel, Hillary Clinton and George Mitchell. Over the weekend, long-stalled talks between Israel and the Palestinians resumed, but they’re indirect, or so-called “proximity” talks. George Mitchell, President Obama’s special envoy, is the mediator. Aaron David Miller is a former US advisor on Arab-Israeli negotiations--now a fellow at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson International Center. He’s just returned from Beirut, Syria, Jerusalem and Ramallah, where he met with national leaders
