President Obama recently met with Benjamin Netanyahu, prime minister of Israel, and will meet with Mahmoud Abbas on May 28.

These sessions are aimed at re-invigorating the Middle East peace process and addressing the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict. This occurs as Obama prepares to address the broader Muslim world from Egypt on June 4.

To examine the issues and preview President Obama’s upcoming trip, Brookings expert Tamara Cofman Wittes and Senior Politico Editor Fred Barbash took questions in this edition of the Scouting Report.
