Qatar FM thinks Arabs need to talk to Israel

Finally, someone with a brain: Arab countries should make a gesture towards Israel after its withdrawal from Gaza by talking with their Middle East neighbour to chart a future for the region, Qatar's foreign minister has said. "Arab countries must take a step towards Israel through an international meeting or a meeting between Arab states and Israel and the co-sponsors of peace, particularly the United States, in an attempt to come up with a clear vision to the period after Gaza," Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor Al Thani said in a speech on Wednesday at the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations. Praising the Israeli pullout after 37 years of occupation in Gaza, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim said Arab countries should respond, stressing that "it is very important that there be a clear vision after this step". Maybe there is hope in this region after all.

ritzy ...actualy G would not foam, he advocated a long time ago a policy of accomodation and rapprochement ( see his whitebook on Isratine)...no one paid any attention even in the Arab League summit.
