The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the most complex and polarizing conflicts in modern history. Nearly seventy years after the foundation of Israel and fifty years since the beginning of the occupation of Gaza and the West Bank territories, the struggle between the two sides seems as far from a resolution as when it first began. How can Israeli and Palestinian leaders move toward a sustainable peace? Is a two-state solution the answer? Can the U.S. and the international community help to bridge gaps and bring the two sides together? Join Palestinian Ambassador, Maen Areikat, J Street President, Jeremy Ben-Ami and KUOW Seattle’s Ross Reynolds for a conversation about the prospects for achieving peace and why it matters so much to the U.S. and the world.
