Israel at 60: Prospects for Peace

Israel is commemorating the 60th anniversary of its independence.

Co-host Renee Montagne talks to Michael Oren, a senior fellow at the Jerusalem-based research group Shalem Center, about what this anniversary means to Israelis and Palestinians. They also discuss how much hope there is for peace talks between the two sides.

On Wednesday, we'll hear from a Palestinian columnist about his perspective on 1948 — a time many Palestinians refer to as the "catastrophe."
