    The Arab League plan is not a practical one because its not just about creating a palestinian state it includes all land captured in 1967 ( Golan included ). The plan leave no room for negotiation its a black and white no compromise plan whereby Israel accepts it in its entirety without objecting to any part of it or the thing is off the table. It also doesn't really guarantee Israel's security. The Gulf states who drafted this plan have better things to do other than wage war anyway, the sheiks are to interested in the size of their bank accounts so they were never an issue. Israel pulled out of Lebanon in 2000 but Hezbollah continue to wage war with Israel and they didn't accept the plan, Hamas didn't accept it, Iran didn't accept it. Even the PA refused to sign up to it. The plan is just not in Israel's best interests because the countries who have signed up to it are the ones who there is no immediate risk of war with so whats the point. The arab winter has also now proven its not practical. If we signed up to the arab plan today it would mean giving the Golan over to Syria and this civil war has proven to the peace nicks that even today there is a need the Golan. Very few Israelis will be happy about the idea of just giving up all land to the arabs because the Arab League plan does not allow for negotiation. The arab plan was dead in the water from the start, for the arabs it was more about lets try our luck not we expect Israel to go along with this. Any plan that doesn't allow Israel room for negotiation and says we must give up everything as part of the package is doomed to fail.
