From: Inside Story

Is the US an honest broker?

As the leaders of Israel and the US meet, we ask what this means for the peace process.

Following the meeting between Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, and Barack Obama, the US president, Inside Story asks if the US can be trusted as an honest broker in the Middle East and if there will be any progress in the peace process.

Joining the show to discuss this are: Geoffrey Aronson, the director of research at the Foundation for Middle East peace; Asad Abukhalil, a professor of political science at California State University; and Bret Stephens, a foreign affairs columnist at the Wall Street Journal.
