The Middle East: How Much Is It Changing?

The political dynamic in the Middle East is changing for the better, according to a distinguished panel of experts who gathered at the Graduate School of Journalism on April 6. And much of that change, they say, can be credited to the Bush administration. Nicholas Lemann, dean of the School of Journalism, moderated a discussion that included Ethan Bronner, deputy foreign editor for The New York Times; Khalil Shikaki, director of the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR); Ilene Prusher, Jerusalem bureau chief for the Christian Science Monitor; and Michael B. Oren, s enior fellow at the Shalem Center in Jerusalem.
