Will there ever be peace in the embattled Middle East? As the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians swells from the recent rocket attacks against Israel and Israel's offensive in Gaza, many questions have been raised about the future of the Palestinians. Where do they go from here? What actions are needed from the international community to help end this war? Amidst the violence and fleeing refugees, can a Palestinian state actually come to fruition? Even though Hamas has suffered casualties, have they won sympathy? A panel of Palestinian voices and experts will share their outlooks for the region.
