DATE: July 20, 2013. TIME: 12:15p – 1:15p EST

It's summer again, but the winds of change, initially known as the Arab Spring, have turned chilly. The civil war in Syria gets bloodier by the day, and the blood is now flowing across borders, drawing in one country and group after another. Egypt is in turmoil. There is unrest in Tunisia, Libya, Jordan, and Bahrain. And, for all of Secretary Kerry's commendable efforts to date, the Arab-Israeli peace process remains a “peace process” in name only. Al Jazeera Media Network Washington Bureau Chief Dr. Abderrahim Foukara, United States Institute of Peace Senior Fellow - Wilson Center Distinguished Scholar Robin Wright, and Anwar Sadat Chair for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland and Brookings Institution Non-Resident Senior Fellow Dr. Shibley Telhami will assess the state of affairs in this vital region and opine on its implications for our security here at home. CBS News Vice President and Washington Bureau Chief Christopher Isham moderates.
