NPR's Linda Gradstein reports a year after the election of Prime Minister Ehud Barak, his government is in deep disarray. Barak has been forced by the panic in southern Lebanon and Palestinian rioting to cancel his trip to Washington to meet with President Clinton. Palestinians are upset at the glacial pace of peace talks. Barak is staying home to patch up his shaky coalition government.
