"I knew my job in life was to try and make Israel find peace," says Martin Indyk, former U.S. ambassador to Israel.
In this behind the scenes glimpse at his life, Indyk - one of the most influential people in the middle east over the last two decades - tells Jewish World contributor leadel.NET why he still believes in the roadmap to peace.

Indyk was born in England, raised in Australia and developed his career mostly in the U.S. He has spent a lifetime researching and influencing Middle East deplomacy, moving between real world politics and academia without losing faith in his stated goal - peace between Israel and its neighbors.
This is the first of Leadel.NET'S 'Living the Vision' series on The Jewish World.
Leadel.NET is a group organized in collaboration with the European Jewish Congress, dedicated to inspiring vision and promoting 'doership' in the Jewish world.
It is a project designed to inspire and support initiative amongst a young global Jewish audience.
By utilizing the power of the Web, it aims to continually deliver thought-provoking stories that address vision and explore how Jewish identity plays a role in peoples' accomplishments.
It is also working to facilitate active online communities, as well hands on projects, where people can carry out their own individual and communal goals.
Through Living the Vision, Leadel hopes to offer Haaretz readers the chance to address the big questions of personal vision and identity, and to learn what today's leaders of different fields have to say about their own journeys to success.
