U.S. envoy to greet new Israeli leaders on Mideast trip

The Obama administration’s special envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, is on his first mission to Israel since Benjamin Netanyahu became prime minister.

Mitchell arrived in Tel Aviv on Wednesday after first stopping in North Africa. On the top of his agenda: Discussions about a two-state solution to bring peace between Palestinians and Israelis, something Prime Minister Netanyahu has so far refused to endorse.

Daniel Levy, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation in Washington D.C., joins Martin Savidge to discuss Mitchell’s time in North Africa, his support for a two-state solution and his scheduled meeting with Palestinian leaders on Friday.

I hope Worldfocus doesn’t start following the lead of the BBC and interview only left-wingers and writers from Haaretz, a notoriously left wing paper. There are other papers and other points of view in Israel. By the way, how come there has been a Gaza related story mentioning that almost all the residents of Sderot are Moroccan Jews,and other Jews from Arab countries, who abandoned their homes and properties back in the Arab countries after 1948? Roughly 850,000 Jews left, or were forced to leave the Muslim countries, yet not one major story on this fact.


Are there no Arabs/ Palestinians in the tri-state area to talk about this issue other than a former Israeli governemnt employee. Mr. Levy is very shalow and lacks the proper understanding a good scholar must have on many of the issues. I hope that your program looks around Columbia, NYU, Rutgers, Marymount Manhattan College all these institutions have very acomplished Arab and Palestinian experts who can comment on Palestinian and Arab issues much better that Mr. Levy
