Siding & sidelining? Gershon Baskin, founder of Israel/Palestine: Creative Regional Initiatives
In the 25 years since the Oslo process was launched, it remains the most fruitful round of talks on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, not only because of the formal accords it produced but also because it managed to put the protagonists in one room and have them talk to one another. Some believe this direct exchange was only possible because the Americans were not around, and as another US administration tries yet again to mediate between the Israelis and the Palestinians, the question arises: How big of a problem is the mediation itself? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Gershon Baskin, founder of Israel/Palestine: Creative Regional Initiatives.
