Diplomats Try to Keep Mideast Peace Talks Alive

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

The U.S. is scrambling to keep the Palestinians and Israelis talking this morning since Israel's moratorium on settlement construction in the West Bank expired on Sunday night. The United Nations, along with the French, British, and American governments have all called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to put a stop to the construction. 

Also drawing international attention this morning, Israel's military took control of a boat carrying nine Jewish activists attempting to breach the naval block of Gaza. The incident comes four months after the Israeli military killed nine Turkish activists during a raid on a flotilla also attempting to break the blockade.

For the latest from Israel, we're joined by New York Times Jerusalem bureau chief Ethan Bronner.
