Prospects for Peace in the Middle East

Program #ASHH001. Recorded in Denver, CO on September 11, 2002.

The adjective most often used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is intractable. Ancient hatreds, the experts tell us, make it impossible for the two peoples to live in peace. Peace, peace, peace is chanted like a mantra by both parties. Yet what is preventing it from being realized? For decades, there has been an almost unanimous international consensus on solving the problem. UN Security Council resolutions 242 and 338 are the foundations for a settlement. Two countries have consistently opposed the implementation of those resolutions: Israel and the United States. Interviewed by David Barsamian.
