Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak over the weekend urged Israel to reconsider its Middle East policies and accept the Arab peace initiative. "Israel must reconsider its policies and its way of treating the Palestinians and Arabs… if [Israel] chooses the path of peace... this will encourage the Arabs to have confidence in its intentions," Mubarak was quoted by AFP as saying in an interview with Egypt's armed forces magazine published on Saturday. According to the report, Mubarak stressed that peace could not be achieved "by one party imposing its will on another party or by imposing a fait accompli." The Egyptian president also stressed the need for "political will, in particular from the Israeli leaders."
