The article offers information about the neglect of the U.S. administration and the Israeli government of the Arab Peace Initiative. When it was presented at the Arab League summit in Beirut, Lebanon in March 2002 and revived at Arab League summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in March 2007 to offer Israel full peace and normalization in return for full withdrawal from occupied Palestinian territories and also provided an exceptional opportunity to settle the century-old Arab-Israeli conflict. But the scheme was ignored by both the U.S. and Israeli government because it did not coincide with their immediate regional plans, to focus on Israeli-Palestinian tract and neither country welcomed a unified Arab position invoking a reference to international law and United Nations resolutions.
