Iraq For Land?
With the impetus provided by the Iraq Study Group, Jordan, Egypt and other Arab states will also seek to link help on stabilizing Iraq to the Israel-Palestinian crisis when Secretary of State Rice meets with Arab foreign ministers in Kuwait this week.
Moderate Arab governments plan to tell Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice they will help Washington stabilize Iraq if the U.S. takes more active steps to revive a broad peace initiative between Israel and its neighbors, Arab officials and media said Sunday.
The deal, dubbed “Iraq for Land,” is expected to be proposed during a meeting between Rice and her counterparts from eight Arab countries in Kuwait on Tuesday.
Many of these nations have complained about the situation in Iraq in the past and lamented its implications throughout the Middle East. It appears they have been quite capable of participating further in assisting Iraq and this new move may well rightly offend Iraqi and American leaders.
