Arabs may reconsider peace strategy with Israel, report

Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi said on Saturday that the Arabs should review the peace proposals offered to Israel and the entire peace process in response to its aggression in Gaza.

Arab League member states should “reconsider all past Arab initiatives on the peace process and review their peace strategy as a whole,” he told an Arab foreign ministers’ meeting in Cairo which was called to discuss the conflict in Gaza.

Speaking after Arabi, Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr too said Arab governments had to “reconsider this peace strategy.”

“There are proposals, and many efforts, without there being any peace,” he said, adding that in the future “there would be no more land left to talk about a Palestinian state” because of Israeli construction of settlements in the occupied West Bank.

They are referring to the 2002 proposal in which Arab states offered Israel diplomatic recognition in return for its withdrawal from all territories occupied in the 1967 war territory an equitable settlement of the Palestinian refugee question.

The proposal, dubbed the Arab Peace Initiative, has since defined Arab diplomacy towards Israel.
