More fighting over night in The Middle East.

The Peace process between Israelis and Palestinians has been in cardiac arrest for six months. It is now flatlining and there isn’t enough charge in the defibrillator paddles to revive it. The Israeli military is bombing Syrian positions in Lebanon and taking land along the Gaza strip. Meanwhile Hamas says it has 100 suicide bombers ready to make Israeli bus stations and market places even more fearful than they already are. Making sense of the Middle East is never easy. One man knows the back story better than anyone: Dennis Ross.

The United States former special envoy to the region knows the players and what really happened at Camp David better than anyone else. The personalities of the players and the prospects for war and peace. Dennis Ross on the Middle East is here.
