ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of the re-adoption of Arab Peace Initiative to countries in the Middle East. It was re-adopted by the Arab League in March 2007 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and considered the most momentous declaration to come out of the Arab world and it would be tragic to allow the Initiative to die the way it withered when it was first introduced in Beirut, Lebanon. The program is the only hope for a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace and it has the potential to stop many horrific fires and extremism that engulfed the Middle East, to the detriment of the U.S. and its allies in the region. It the U.S. and Israel will continue to neglect the scheme, it will send a dangerous message to the Arab world that neither country is interested in ending the 60-year conflict.
