More on the subject of peace.

The article says that the leaders of Arab states have rejected Israel's offer to meet and negotiate over the Arab League's demands (or "peace plan"). Instead, the Arab League intends to meet with OTHER states in what can best be described as a marketing and propaganda campaign.

This was the concern that I and many others had with the so called "peace plan." It's not really an attempt to seek peace, but an attempt to build political capital and further ostracize Israel.

When the Arab League announced its ultimatum, many people called on Israel to start talking. Israel has taken them up on that offer.

Now the question is this. Will "peace advocates" demand that the Arab League respond to Israel's offer to talk? Or is this just a propaganda campaign?
