Israelis Go to the Polls as the Nation Moves Right

Hosted by

Recent polls indicate a close election tomorrow, but all three major parties are moving to the right. That could mean trouble for one of President Obama's major goals, that of negotiations leading to a Palestinian state. We hear about Israel's election tomorrow and the formation of the new government, as well as concerns about security. Does the peace process still have a chance? Is Israel likely to strike Iran?
