The Palestinian question : is there a solution?

Discusses the Arab-Israeli relations.
As the Cold War drew to a close, policymakers sought to reexamine Arab-Israeli relations in light of the new global balance of power. With the decline of the Soviet Union, several Arab states lost one of their most powerful allies, and an increasing number of Eastern Bloc states began to reach out to Israel. Faced with nearly one million Jewish Soviet immigrants, the Israeli government enacted plans to expand settlements in the occupied territories despite objections from the United States and the international community. As the Palestinian Intifada (uprising) continued into its second year, the United States was forced to reassess the effectiveness of its role in the peace process. This program examines American approaches to mediation in the region, as well as Israel’s strategic importance to the United States and the need for direct talks between the Israelis and Palestinians. Guests include Richard Allen, former National Security Advisor for President Reagan, Karen Elliott House of the Wall Street Journal, and Madeleine Albright, future Secretary of State for President Clinton.
