It's certainly true that the Arab peace initiative is a leap forward in thinking when the members confirmed that " that a military solution to the conflict will not achieve peace or provide security for the parties". In addition, they recognized the principal of "land for peace." Stenger is enamored with this proposal without any reason. Negotiations have been going on for 17 years based on the principals of the Arab proposal. And Stenger selectively quotes the first part of the statement on refugees and leaves out the remainder of the sentence which reads: " .. .to be agreed upon in accordance with UN General Assembly Resolution 194." This seems harmless except when you actually read the relevant point in 194 which says: "Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date..." So. Mr. Stenger, Israelis actually do understand what the Arab initiave says about the refugees.
