TEL AVIV — Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Sunni Muslim countries are ready to normalize ties with Israel should Israel negotiate a peace deal with the Palestinian Authority on the basis of the Arab Peace Initiative.

The Arab Peace Initiative, first proposed in 2002 and reaffirmed in recent years, calls for full normalization between Israel and the Arab world in exchange for an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and Golan Heights. It would include land swaps, the establishment of a Palestinian state and a negotiated agreement on Palestinian refugees. Israel has never formally responded to the proposal.

    Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing. What does "normalize" mean? It means having day-to-day operations with Israel . It does NOT mean recognizing Israel's right to exist which is fundamental. The Arab initiative still leaves open the eventual destruction of Israel. That 2002 agreement calls for Israel retreating to the Armistice lines of 1949 which all Arab countries rejected at that time. This includes the permanent division of Jerusalem including the ethnic cleansing of Jews from the portion which Jordan captured in its war of aggression against Israel. And, the 2002 Agreement calls for the unlimited return of "Palestinian refugees" to Israel, thereby permanently altering the Israeli population in favor of Arabs and Moslems.

    The "Arab peace initiative" should be utterly rejected for the anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic fraud that it is.
