    Howdy Cipora; I realize that the Arab initiative in its present form is unacceptable to Israel, but is it just a list of non-negotiable demands which is doomed to die a miserable death like all the other peace proposals to date or does it allow for compomise on some sticky issues like borders, refugees, and the status of East Jerusalem via negotiations? Certainly, negotiations would have to be conducted with the PA and not with the Arab League. How can the Arab League speak for the Palestinians? The carrot of recognition of Israel by Arab League members contained in the Arab initiative is not a very big carrot since Israel has survived quite nicely for 60 years without it and can do so for another 60 years if necessary, plus it would not be binding on the Palestinians since they are not official members of the Arab League but are only observers.
