Escalating Hostilities in Israel

Hosted by
After another suicide bombing in Jerusalem, President Bush has again called for Yasser Arafat to stop terrorism and for Israel to halt provocative military escalation like last week's seizure of Oriental House, the PLO's East Jerusalem headquarters. Does it make it harder for Arafat to keep the lid on? Is the Israeli impulse for peace making giving way to the hard line nationalism of the past? We get an update on the continuing hostilities, then search for a way out of the continuing cycle of violence with a diplomat, politician, and Palestinian human rights activist.
