President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu have had tense exchanges recently on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

May. 24, 2011

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wraps up his U.S. tour with an address to a joint session of Congress today. We get analysis of his trip from Israeli Ilan Peleg and Ali Abunimah, a Chicago-based Palestinian-American who writes the blog The Electronic Intifada. Also, northern Sudanese troops seized control of the contested region of Abyei over the weekend. Many fear the escalation could reignite civil war in Sudan. John Bradshaw, executive director of the Enough Project, tells us what this means for peace in Africa’s largest country.
