Israel's Netanyahu Arrives in Washington to Meet with Obama
Newly-elected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with US President Barack Obama on Monday to discuss a renewed Middle East peace process. Netanyahu will arrive in Washington on Monday and while a two-state solution is on the table for discussion, analysts say it won't go anywhere.
With control of the Gaza Strip and West Bank split between Hamas and Fatah, there is little chance the Palestinians can come together to push for a two-state solution.
The visit is sparking hopes of a renewed Middle East peace process, and Netanyahu is expected to publicly endorse the creation of a Palestinian state -- something the conservative politician has shied away from in the past.
However, while Netanyahu's expected pledge to make peace and carve out a Palestinian state looks good from a public relations perspective, it may be a hollow promise.
