On GPS Sunday: The latest on the Middle East, a look at Ukraine, and understanding Ebola

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

On GPS this Sunday: First, a live look at the crisis in the Middle East and the latest developments in Gaza.

Then, the crisis in Ukraine. Past rounds of sanctions have appeared to have little effect on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s plans. Will Europe’s latest effort at pressure? And what should NATO’s role be? Fareed speaks with Poland's foreign minister, Radek Sikorski, one of those who pushed hard for these sanctions.

“We want a standing defense plans. We want bigger response forces,” Sikorski says. “And unfortunately, the Russian actions in Ukraine don't make us feel more secure, but less secure.”

Also, the deadly Ebola virus has killed hundreds of people in Africa. What is stopping it from spreading to other continents? Fareed speaks with CNN's Sanjay Gupta and Peter Piot, the man who actually co-discovered Ebola.

    I think people who are not aware of the disease stand better survival chances than those who do. The belief of dying causes tremendous stress. And so much stress affects the immunity and fighting capability of the body. That is just another belief.

    Yeah, Ebola must be another of those very lethal diseases that need to be stopped from spreading.

        I've seen this particular incarnation under several names before. He's pretty transparent, and unimaginative. Chaotic personality disorders tend to eventually circle back to its origins.

      Do you have a spreadsheet to keep all of your names straight? You've obviously didn't consult it this time.

    A few days ago, in a glass factory in the recently-liberated Lysychansk, Ukrainian troops found large stocks of medicines and food from Russia, barrels of gunpowder, patches of internal troops of Russia, as well as a huge amount of ammunition.

    Here is direct evidence of the fact that Russia is supplying the terrorists in Eastern Ukraine.

    Hmm @ Jim, thank you for that link. Unfortunately Putin will still be allowed to supply his mercenaries to murder innocent people and the world will do nothing!

    The show this Sunday looks like an extension to the Sutuation Room. I could tune in to cnn all day to see Wolf, he is there forever. I tune in to GPS for analytical journalism. This is back to back weeks the show failed to meet my expectations.

  13. Peace in Greater Middle East

    is needed. USA military has arms warehousings and supplies weapons to the region – that's not the wright way. PEACE is needed in the greater Mediterranean Region, greater Middle East – no wars. We want Mr.Obama to step down because of his faulty war policies and his inability to negotiate a trustworthy PEACE DEAL.

      @ Peace:
      I know that you are putting us all on Candid Camera.
      Y'all think that Obama can just decree, "let there be peace," and smile benignly as he observes the manifestation of blessed Peace between two groups who clainn ownership of one parcel of land?
