The conflict between Israel and Hamas rages in the aftermath of a six month truce, which expired earlier this month. Today marks day four of what Israel's Defense Minister, Ehud Barak, describes as a ?war to the bitter end.? As of Monday the death toll had topped 360 with 1400 wounded. For an assessment of how this will end and what America's responsibility will be under an Obama Administration, we are joined by Daniel Levy. Mr. Levy is a Senior Fellow and Director of the Middle East Initiative at the New America Foundation. Mr. Levy was a member of the official Israeli delegation to the Taba negotiations with the Palestinians in January 2001, and previously served on the Israeli negotiating team to the "Oslo B" Agreement from May to September 1995, under Prime Minister Rabin.
