Sowdi Prince Offers Israel "integration into the Arab geographical entity"

* There’s a sucker born every minute, and Olmert and the suckers around him might just be ready to suck it up:

By Paul Taylor

KRONBERG, Germany (Reuters) – A senior Saudi royal has offered Israel a vision of broad cooperation with the Arab world and people-to-people contacts if it signs a peace treaty and withdraws from all occupied Arab territories.

In an interview with Reuters, Prince Turki al-Faisal, a former ambassador to the United States and Britain and adviser to King Abdullah, said Israel and the Arabs could cooperate in many areas including water, agriculture, science and education.

Asked what message he wanted to send to the Israeli public, he said:

“The Arab world, by the Arab peace initiative, has crossed the Rubicon from hostility towards Israel to peace with Israel and has extended the hand of peace to Israel, and we await the Israelis picking up our hand and joining us in what inevitably will be beneficial for Israel and for the Arab world.”

The 22-nation Arab League revived at a Riyadh summit last year a Saudi peace plan first adopted in 2002 offering Israel full normalisation of relations in return for full withdrawal from occupied Palestinian, Syrian and Lebanese land.

Israel shunned the offer then, at the height of a violent Palestinian uprising in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

But it has expressed more interest since the United States launched a new drive for Israeli-Palestinian peace at Annapolis, Maryland, last November, aiming for an agreement this year.

Prince Turki, who was previously head of Saudi intelligence, said that if Israel accepted the Arab League plan and signed a comprehensive peace, “one can imagine the integration of Israel into the Arab geographical entity”.

    Yes, but “Prince” Turki al-Faisal’s “offer” is consistent with the moves to create a
    “Mediterranean Union” which will include (among others) Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco …

    * … if it signs a peace treaty and withdraws from all occupied Arab territories …

    What, the Arab territories that Israel “occupied” after the 6 day war in 1967 following
    an Arab invasion?

    What would the “peace treaty” involve? A seven-year covenant that would allow Israel
    to rebuild the Temple & resume the legal & sacrificial system? Who would be the chief
    signatory to such a treaty be, or more important, what would his number be?

  2. If this deal is signed the Koranists will get to benefit from Israeli scientific knowledge. Meanwhile, the killing of Israelis will keep on humming along. Thanks but no thanks for this one sided deal.

  3. “…one can imagine the integration of Israel into the Arab geographical entity.”

    It would be a death warrant for Israel. And what chutzpah – “integration of Israel into the Arab geographical entity.” What a heap of codswallop!
