Will Middle East peace talks falter again over Israeli settlement building?

Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, refused to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement construction, yet he has repeated his calls for Palestinians to participate peace talks.

After an 18-month hiatus, direct negotiations between the two camps restarted earlier this month, under the watch of Barack Obama, the US president.

Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, said on Sunday that Israel must decide between "peace or settlements".

On Tuesday's Riz Khan we ask: What concessions need to be made for direct talks between the Israelis and Palestinians to move forward?

Joining the programme is Mustafa Barghouti, a Palestinian politician and human rights activist, Daniel Levy, the co-director of the Middle East Task Force at the New America Foundation, and Ghaith al-Omari, the advocacy director at the American Task Force on Palestine.

This episode of Riz Khan aired from Tuesday, September 28, 2010.
