As the Mideast chaos has focused elsewhere, the Israeli and Palestinian issue has been largely sidelined. Negotiated peace, the classic paradigm for the last few decades, has been put aside. What will take its place? What new paradigm can offer peace to both sides and put aside this tragic conflict? What can the US do?

David Makovsky, Ziegler Distinguished Fellow and Director of the Project on the Middle East Peace Process at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, is the co-author with Ambassador Dennis Ross of the 2009 Washington Post bestseller, Myths, Illusions, and Peace: Finding a New Direction for America in the Middle East.

Ghaith Al-Omari, Senior Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, previously he served as Executive Director at the American Task Force on Palestine. He held various positions within the Palestinian Authority, including Director of the International Relations Department in the Office of the Palestinian President.
