Israel-Palestine: Disengagement and the Prospects for Peace

Ami Ayalon, Israeli Labor Party Knesset member joined us for a
discussion on the current political situation in Israel and the Middle
East and prospects for the future. While the construction of a physical
separation between Israelis and Palestinians has many supporters in
Israel, the route and nature of this separation is highly debated. This
will affect the prospects of a two state solution and the viability of
a final status agreement between Israelis and Palestinians. Ayalon
spoke on a number of topics, ranging from the question of : where and
how should this separation be constructed? to such issues as Israeli
unilateralism. Other topics included the questions of: can Israelis and
Palestinians find a way to resume peace negotiations, as well as an
initial look at the developing situation in Gaza.
