As the peace talks in Washington get underway, we turn to residents living out the process in Israel and Palestine.
Avishai Vak is an Israeli who lives in the Eli settlement in the West Bank. He's lived htere for twelve years and is pessimistic about the peace process. "We pray three times a day for peace, our dream if peace," he says. However, he is skeptical about the role of Palestine, saying, "they see peace as a strategic move, they do't see it as a goal."
In reasponse, we hear from Dr. Khamis Elessi, who lives in Gaza City. Like Vak, Dr. Elessi has a hard time envisioning peace. "I'm less optimistic now than before, at least before Israel had someting to offer. There is no more land to be given to us. More than 80 percent of the west bank is filled with settlements."
