Israelis Await Annapolis with Hope, Skepticism

Five days before the Middle East peace summit in Annapolis, we take a look at how Israelis view the conference, after years of negotiations and conflict with the Palestinians.

Some Israelis are cautiously optimistic, saying there is a new opportunity for peace. Others say nothing has changed, and any concessions would damage Israel.

Even those who support Annapolis are skeptical. They say Palestinian leaders will not be able to implement any peace deal even if one is reached.
