Arab League Delegation to Submit New Peace Proposal to US

Jan 29 2013 / 10:16 pm

A delegation representing the Arab League will soon head to the United States to move forward the Middle East peace process, a Palestinian envoy said Tuesday.

Muhammad Sbeih, secretary-general for Palestinian affairs in the Arab League, told Jordan’s al-Ghad newspaper that the delegation would submit a proposal to Washington with new ideas for a solution for the Arab-Israeli conflict.

“The proposal includes specific Arab ideas about Israel’s withdrawal from the occupied Palestinian territory, the establishment of a Palestinian state, guaranteed security for both sides,” he said.

Negotiations, according to the new proposal, should be limited to six months.

Sbeih highlighted that the proposal, already submitted to Arab governments, addresses the role of the international Quartet and the possibility to make certain changes to that role and give the Quartet specific tasks with a clear deadline.

Sbeih added that the absence of terms of reference and a clear timeline serve Israeli interests as that helps Israel gain more time and impose more facts on the ground as settlement expansion continues.

    Netanyahu, His Pants on Fire, Brings Torch to Washington

    But it appears the Obama administration’s irritation with Netanyahu’s congressional gambit has hit the breaking point. On Tuesday, Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, was blunt about how Netanyahu’s speech will hurt U.S.-Israeli ties: “It’s destructive of the fabric of the relationship.” - A few days earlier, Josh Earnest, the White House spokesman, said that Israel, in its criticism of the Iranian negotiations, has been “cherry-picking...

    Fidel's Comments on Israel Should Be Heeded

    Of all the comments penned about Israel's atrocities inflicted on the people of Gaza, Fidel Castro's reflection published in Granma, the newsletter of the Cuban Communist Party, is of utmost significance.
