Today, 12:15 – 1:45 pm EST, I will chairing an interesting session with WALTER RUSSELL MEAD and DANIEL LEVY that will run live on The Washington Note and also run LIVE on C-Span.
Mead, a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, has written an important new essay that has just been issued in the latest edition of Foreign Affairs magazine titled “Change They Can Believe In: To Make Israel Safe, Give Palestinians Their Due.”
This article is a major piece by Walter Russell Mead, outlining a proposal for Palestine that may appeal to many who have been dragging their feet and souls on the subject.
Mead is also author of the acclaimed books God and Gold: Britain, America, and the Making of the Modern World as well as Special Providence: American Foreign Policy and How it Changed the World.
Daniel Levy, my colleague at the New America Foundation co-directing our new Middle East Task Force, will offer comments. Levy also writes the blog, Prospects for Peace. (I keep telling Levy that I no longer really believe in peace — just equilibrium).
If you can join us in person in Washington or watch the exchange of ideas live on this blog or C-Span.
