Peace debate in London

The prospect of a lasting peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is to be debated in London this September before an audience of 2,000 people, the day before Israel chooses a successor to Ehud Olmert as Prime Minister.

Speakers include Palestinian negotiator and legislator Dr Hanan Ashwari, Dr Mustafa Barghouti of the Palestinian Legislative Council and Yael Dayan, daughter of Moshe Dayan and Deputy Mayor of Tel Aviv.

Also speaking will be outgoing ambassador to the UN, Danny Gillerman; Efraim Halevy, former director of Mossad; and Sir Malcolm Rifkind MP, who served as both Defence Secretary and Foreign Secretary in the last Conservative government.
