Twenty years ago this month, president Bill Clinton invited Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak and Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) chairman Yasser Arafat to a peace summit at Camp David in an effort to reach a conflict-ending accord. Those negotiations and subsequent efforts based on the Clinton parameters later that year did not succeed; nor have peacemaking efforts over the past two decades.
With possible Israeli annexation of the West Bank looming, join us as the former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak, and PLO foreign minister Nabeel Shaath discuss the significance of the Camp David meeting then and now and where Israelis and Palestinians go from here.
