Miller discusses obstacles to making Israeli-Palestinian peace

After about 40 years of studying and being involved in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, Aaron David Miller believes three things hold true in regards to ending the conflict. First, ending the conflict is possible, so long as the right circumstances are in place. Second, dialogue and negotiation are necessary. And third, the United States has a major role to play in those negotiations.

Miller delivered the third of his five Interfaith Lectures for Week Seven at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the Hall of Philosophy. He has studied the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a historian, and in the 1980s, he was an intelligence analyst for the U.S. Department of State, focusing on Lebanon and Palestine. He has also worked as a policy maker and negotiator under six secretaries of state.
