    For the past 60 years the Arab world has virtually nothing for the Palestinians in solving the refugee problem, offering aid, or standing shoulder to shoulder for their cause. They muster up enthusiasm when it comes to confronting Israel, but besides that, ltttle else. And now that the time has come to attempt to solve the problem once and for all, to pursue a two state solution, and begin negotiations, it appears that the Arab world is going to do nothing but tie Abbas's hands behind his back at the negotiating table. Will they pressure him against making concessions, about possible taking steps to make peace with us and thereby prolong and escalate the conflict? I am curious as to whether the Arab world really wants to solve the Palestinian problem at all, even as much as Israel does, or as much as the Palestinians themselves. If the Arab ambassadors are going to place sticks in the spokes of the wheels, what is the point of having them there?
