President to Meet with Israeli, Palestinian Leaders

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

President Obama is due to bring both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to a meeting at the U.N. in New York today. He'll be looking for ways to restart Middle East peace negotiations. The president wants Israel to stop settlement building in the West Bank, the Palestinians say they won't negotiate until that happens, and the Israelis seem leery of ordering a hard stop. We talk with BBC's Jon Donnison from the West Bank town of Ramallah and hear some Palestinian voices.
