Watch"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this Sunday: The escalation of violence between Israel and Hamas has made many wonder: Is this the dawn of the third intifada? And how does it relate to the other fires now burning in the Middle East?
Fareed convenes a panel to discuss the issue that includes Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass, Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens, Shibley Telhami, author of The World Through Arab Eyes: Arab Public Opinion and the Reshaping of the Middle East, and Chrystia Freeland, a member of the Canadian parliament and former top editor at the Financial Times and Reuters.
And, the crisis between Russia and the West over Ukraine may not be making the headlines at the moment, but it is far from over says Sweden's foreign minister, Carl Bildt.
Plus, why was a French bank fined $9 billion by the U.S. government? Fareed explains how the United States is wielding a unique weapon that is the economic equivalent of a killer drone.
Also, Washington is dysfunctional and can't fix the student debt problem. But GPS will look at a place in America that has figured out a fix in the latest installment of our Where America Works series.
