The latest round of Israeli -Palestinian violence
July 15, 2014
Guests: Khaled Elgindy and Daniel Kurtzer
As the latest round of deadly violence between Israel and Hamas forces in Gaza continues, weâ€™ll talk about the roots of this current exchange of military strikes, the internal and geopolitical politics exacerbating it, and the continuing challenges for a meaningful peace process between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Our guests, KHALED ELGINDY and DANIEL KURTZER, both have been involved in past negotiations between the two sides. Elgindy is a fellow at the Brookings Institution and served as an advisor to the Palestinian leadership in Ramallah. Daniel Kurtzer, a professor at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School, served as U.S. Ambassador to Egypt and Israel during his 29 years in the U.S. Foreign Service.
