An exclusive interview with President Thein Sein about the rapid transformation of Myanmar – a revolution in progress.
Israel plans to expand settlements in East Jerusalem and the possible repercussions on the U.S.–Israeli relations and the Middle East peace process was heavily discussed among the Amanpour audience. Some felt that although the U.S – Israeli relations evolved and this indicated a positive pull toward this situation, the settlements “needed to stop.” Additionally, while some suggested a one state solution with two legislative bodies others thought this was a risqué move and it “would not work.” Overall, viewers had a good exchange of ideas that differed in opinion but shared a common goal.

Facebook comments about the Israel plans to expand settlements in East Jerusalem
Peter Houston Make no mistakes. And I do not want anyone to misrepresent my presentation. I am not advocating any attack on Israel. i want peace in Israel. i want peace in Palestine. But if Israel will not negotiate in good faith, Arab Nations must not sit and continue to watch Palestinians suffer the kind of treatment that the world delivered the Israelis from many years ago. Enough is Enough.
Markus Lique Umaguing Jr I believe the Israelis knows what they r doing in East Jerusalem and US won't abandon them, not at this point in time..
Mary Ann Parker I think they need to stop the settlements
Muhiire Nathan Israel has always taken USA for granted. The arrogance on their part puts USA in a complicated situation when it comes to mediation.
Aminullah Alonto Lucman How about a one state solution with two legislative bodies, one for Israel and another for the Palestinians. Regional Senators will be coming from the two legislative entities as a singular entity and then a president to be elected on a one man one vote policy, it can be an Israeli or a Palestinian president. Politicians in this arrangement will certainly abandon violence, or they may be voted out of office, how about it?
