Palestinian Leadership
Guests:

James Bennet
*Bureau Chief, The New York Times based in Jerusalem

Shibley Telhami
*Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Development, University of Maryland, College Park
*Member of the American Delegation, Trilateral American/Israeli/Palestinian Anti-Incitement Committee (mandated by the Wye River Agreement between Israel and the Palestinians)

Robert Melley
*Senior Policy Advisor, Center for Middle-East Peace and Economic Cooperation
*Former Special Envoy for Arab-Israeli Relations during the President Clinton Administration (1998-2001)

The Israeli government has stopped talking to Yasser Arafat. Arafat is still the leader of the Palestinian Authority, but he's seventy-two and not in the best of health. Who will succeed him ... even if we don't know when? Will a new leader make peace more likely ... or less? The Palestinian leadership after Yasser Arafat.
