A Father's Rite

A fragile cease-fire holds in Gaza, while debates over the legitimacy and effectiveness of the Israeli offensive continue.

Yossi Klein Halevi is an Israeli writer and reconciliation activist. He's also the father of an Israeli soldier who served in the recent offensive. For many years, Yossi felt optimistic a peaceful solution could be found, but in the last few years, his views have taken a turn. Yossi talks with Dick Gordon about how the frequent suicide bombs and failure of peace talks eroded his optimism, and what he's learned from talking with his son.
