Already there is tough talk over settlements with Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, telling his Likud party that he will allow a partial settlement freeze to expire in September.

Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, has responded by saying that lifting the 'freeze' would mean an end to any peace talks.

On Tuesday's Riz Khan show we explore what is at stake and whether or not real progress is possible with controversial Israeli columnist and author, Gideon Levy.
