Hey Flemmings,

Thanks for your post. We've asked a few folks about Palestine and Israel. Check out the "Browse Experts" button on the left side of your screen. I'd suggest checking out sections on "Israel", "Middle East Affairs", and "international relations." Also, check out experts Dennis Ross, Sallai Meridor, Dov Zakheim and Stephen Walt for their thoughts on US-Israeli relations. We've got more coming too. From Vali Nasr of the Council on Foreign Relations to Nick Lemann. If you have suggestions for other folks to interview, let us know. And if you have ideas that you don't see up from our experts, post them yourself and get a dialogue going! We're eager to see these conversations start happening. Thanks!
