Will Obama Administration Unveil Middle East Peace Plan?

Thursday, August 27, 2009

The Obama administration wants Israel to stop all construction in the West Bank as a precondition to resuming peace talks with the Palestinians. That's partly why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been meeting with world leaders this week. All of this, according to some predictors, comes ahead of a new Middle East peace plan that could be unveiled by President Obama as early as next month. For more, we're joined by Jonathan Marcus, diplomatic correspondent for the BBC.

Your conversation with Markus somehow failed to get around to two essential issues: (a) will the Palestinians be deceived by Israel's phony settlement freeze, and therefore come to the negotiating table? And (b) what concessions will the United States yield to Israel with respect to the latter's wish for the West to attack Iran, whether via aggressive sanctions or direct incursion. The two issues -- Iran and Israel-Palestine -- are now linked, it seems. Which in itself is a major victory for Israel, as is the phoniness of the planned 'freeze'.
