WHO: P. Edward Haley, Professor of International Relations at Claremont McKenna College and Claremont Graduate University, and Senior Research Associate, the Keck Center for International and Strategic Studies.
WHAT: Is available for comment on Tuesday's Israeli elections.
"Sharon's likely victory represents a failure of U.S. policy. Previous policies have staked everything on reaching a peace treaty. This election reveals how far both sides have to go in order to make peace, and that neither Israelis nor Palestinians are ready for peace," says Professor Haley. "Unfortunately, there will be no winners in this election."
WHEN: Available by telephone (909) 607-3803 or at Claremont McKenna College, 30 minutes east of downtown Los Angeles.
WHY: Professor Haley teaches and publishes in the areas of international security and U.S. foreign policy, specifically U.S. policy in the Middle East, U.S.-European relations and nuclear safety and arms control. He received Bachelor and Master's degrees from Stanford University and a Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. Dr. Haley's 1984 book, Qadaffi and the United States Since 1969, was the first by an American author on that topic, and his newest book, Negotiating Arms Control: An Oral History of the CFE Treaty, will be published next year. In addition to numerous scholarly publications, Dr. Haley has also written on the topic of international relations for the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and the International Herald Tribune, among others.
