Through nearly 20 years of wild ups and downs, Aaron David Miller was in the middle of American efforts to broker Arab-Israeli peace in the Middle East. He saw the good, the bad, and the ugly of our efforts, and theirs.
Now he’s out of the bubble, and talking. Very frankly. About how Americans have lost sight of their country’s own interests in the gale of lobbying over the Mideast. About the need for tough love with everyone, including Israel, if peace — and U.S. security — are ever to be found.
This hour, On Point: Aaron David Miller on America as broker in the Mideast.
Aaron David Miller, former advisor to U.S. secretaries of state on Arab-Israeli negotiations between 1978 and 2003, his new book is “The Much Too Promised Land: America’s Elusive Search for Arab-Israeli Peace.”
