For the first time in 20 months, leaders from Israel and Palestine met at the negotiating table to try to broker a peace agreement. The leaders came together in Washington, D.C. to take part in talks mediated by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. As the U.S. representative, Secretary Clinton was clear in her message – the U.S. can bring the parties to the table, but it is up to Israeli and Palestinian leaders to find a solution. President Obama said, on Wednesday, that "the only path to lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians is direct talks between Israelis and Palestinians."
We talk with Michael Oren, Ambassador for Israel to the United States. "Peace takes courage," he says.
