Inside America: Is the United States an Honest Broker in the Israel-Palestine Conflict?

By Namo Abdulla - for Rudaw


The United States is the superpower, which sees itself as a moral power, as a force for good, and has indeed intervened to stop the escalation of massacres and genocides in Kosovo, Iraq and other parts of the world. But has the United States been an honest broker in the Israel-Palestine conflict?

In this program, I challenge two prominent America experts on Middle East's most discussed issue. One of them is David Makovsky, a former journalist who worked for Israeli publications. He's currently the director of the Washington Institute's Project on the Middle East Peace Process.

The second speaker is Ziad Asali, the President and founder of the American Task Force on Palestine. He served as a member of the United States official delegation to the funeral of Yasser Arafat.
