How Iran's Election Affects the Mideast Peace Process

Monday, June 15, 2009

A hardline anti-Israeli apparently won the election in Iran. Does that strengthen the bargaining position of Israeli president Benjamin Neganyahu, himself a hardliner? Netanyahu finally gave public acceptance to the idea of a Palestinian state. How much more can American diplomats expect from him? Joining The Takeaway from Washington to analyze this latest challenge for the Obama administration is David Sanger. David is the Chief Washington Correspondent and author of “The Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power.” Also joining the discussion is Aaron David Miller, former advisor to the Middle East and the author of “The Much Too Promised Land: America’s Elusive Search for Arab-Israeli Peace.”
