The Cause is Not Lost

Description: David Makovsky, who has served as foreign editor of both Haaretz and the Jerusalem Post, offered a relatively optimistic view of the peace process in the Middle East. Speaking as a guest of CUA’s Middle East Religious Dialogue Program, Makovsky said progress can be achieved in short increments that depends on the clear definition of national borders between two distinct nations, Israel and Palestine, a solution that removes the nebulous status of settlements in occupied territories. Makovsky directs the Project on the Middle East Peace Process for the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
