The Policy Debate
Fighting continues to rock the Middle East as shots fired by militants in Gaza hit Israel on Friday, afflicting the northern part of the country. The death toll, which has now reached nearly 100, continues to grow due to such murderous acts of violence. We spoke with Daniel Kurtzer, Woodrow Wilson School lecturer, the S. Daniel Abraham Professor in Middle Eastern Policy Studies and a former U.S. ambassador to Israel and Egypt, to discuss what's taking place in the Middle East and what role the United States should play.
