LAST NIGHT, ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU AND PALESTINIAN LEADER YASseR ARAFAT FINALLY AGREED TO A PARTIAL ISRAELI PULLOUT OF THE WEST BANK TOWN OF HEBRON. THE DEAL MARKS AT LEAST SOME MOVEMENT IN THE LONG-STALLED PEACE PROCESS, WHICH HAS REMAINED MORE OR LESS BLOCKED SINCE RIGHT WING LIKUD PARTY LEADER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU ASSUMED POWER SEVEN MONTHS AGO.

GUESTS:

NORMAN FINKELSTEIN, the author of The Rise and Fall of Palestine and also Image and Reality of the Israel Palestine Conflict

RICHARD FALK, a professor of international law and policy at Princeton University.
