A Short History of Presidential Mediation and Mideast Peace

Thursday, September 02, 2010

John Hockenberry looks back at the long history of trying to broker peace between Israel and Palestine. From Jimmy Carter's role in the Camp David accords to last night's White House dinner with Arab and Israeli leaders, the peace process has had many false starts and violent ends. Speaking to leaders at the White House last night, President Obama took on this longstanding test of U.S. leadership, asking "What kind of world do we want to bequeath to our children and our grandchildren?"

I wish all leaders the courage and wisdom necessary to conclude a just and lasting peace.
