...and treading water
Many are the bizarre proposals made to promote peace in our region. Now we can add the Arab Peace Initiative, sponsored by Saudi Arabia. But Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has spoken positively about it (“In surprise move, PM says he’s ready to negotiate based on Saudi peace initiative,” May 31).
Has no one noticed that many of the Arab countries that would be involved in such a plan no longer exist as fully functional entities? We need only mention Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen. In addition, there are several more whose future existence is in question.
We are once more getting ready to tread water while true peace remains an illusion.
