PBS: "Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs"

If any of you have time, PBS is broadcasting a well-made documentary on the conflict in Israel from 1999 to 2005 called Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs. The coverage offered was fascinating, mesmerizing, and sad. It covers the breakdown of several peace talks and a steady escalation of violence. The reporting was surprisingly even-keeled, offering insights as to the motivation of not only the Palestinians and Israelis, but also of intervening peacekeepers.

This documentary will be re-broadcast a number of times. To find your local broadcast times, see:
