U.S./ Israeli/ PLO Summit

NPR's Jennifer Ludden reports from Jerusalem on Israeli reaction to a planned U.S.-Israeli-PLO summit next week. The National Religious Party and the immigrants party both oppose the far-reaching land concessions Prime Minister Ehud Barak is prepared to make, and they say they will leave his coalition government. The two ruling parties say Barak is circumventing his own government in order to negotiate a peace deal.
