On GPS Sunday: How to fight al Qaeda, and Barak on the peace process

"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS Sunday: How to fight al Qaeda – Fareed offers his take, and then discusses the terror group's evolving strategies with experts Peter Bergen and Gregory Johnsen.

Then, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak on the Middle East peace process – what are the chances for a deal?

“I’m basically an optimist. I’ve been all along my life,” Barak says. “And I believe that it’s a real need for both sides. Both sides, the leadership of one end, the mainstream understand that the alternatives are much worse. And I think that Secretary Kerry deserves a lot of compliments for his tenacity in bringing both sides to the table.”

In What in the World, reasons to be optimistic about Pakistan's relations with India. And: former media tycoon Conrad Black on his time in U.S. prison – and his take on American leadership.

    Fareed , will you or any other correspondent on CNN or for that matter on any mainstream media in the west ever question the continued violation by the Israeli authorities on the continued violations of International laws/UN regulations on settlements & occupation/repeated incursions into neighbouring states?
    Oh, of course not only they & their backers have the inherent rights to national security.

    It is great that Conrad Black has written a book on one of our greatest presidents but he spent much of his time railing against the US justice system. In my opinion he is proof that the US justice system works in favor of those who are rich and powerful. He received a slap on the wrist for the crimes his former share holders feel he committed. I could not say how I feel because I am an American who lives in Canada and he threatens anyone who voices opinions publicly that he was guilty of the crimes with anti defamation lawsuits. It is interesting that he rails against the number of US lawyers as he employs the threat of using his lawyers to stop the conversation here in Canada.

    I wanted to see the What In the World segment regarding India and Pakistan, but CNN showed in its place the breaking news about the kidnapping case, which of course is "important" because it's a pretty blond white girl that went missing. Of course there would have been the same extensive coverage had it been a homely black kid that had disappeared – NOT. So I'm supposed to pay to see this segment on iTunes? I'm happy the girl was found alive, but really couldn't CNN have put it in the scroll?
