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, we’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.
