The dilemma over settlements in East Jerusalem has created a stalemate in the Middle East peace process, further straining the relationship between Israel and its closest ally, the US.

The Obama administration's repeated calls for a freeze of all new settlements have been consistently rebuffed by Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister, and his right-wing coalition.

Can the Netanyahu government withstand the pressure to move in opposite directions: Those policies demanded by Washington, and those desired by his coalition partners?

Can any of the current Israeli leaders - including Tzipi Livni, the Kadima leader, or Ehud Barak, the Labour leader - make the concessions that allow the peace process to move forward?

On Tuesday's show, Riz speaks with Uri Davis, the first Israeli Jew to become a member of the Fatah Revolutionary Council, and Gil Hoffman, the chief political correspondent and analyst for The Jerusalem Post.

This episode of the Riz Khan show aired on Tuesday, April 13, 2010.
