Qatar: Arab Spring brings up Israeli-Palestinian peace

May 20, 2013 21:17

DOHA - Qatar's emir, who has thrown his state's riches behind Arab uprisings, said on Monday that the emergence of 'people power' had put Arabs in direct confrontation with Israel and made a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict more pressing.

"We heard in the past that reform (in the Arab world) must wait until a peaceful settlement with Israel is achieved, but everybody should realise that such belief is now unfounded after the Arab Spring revolts," Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani told a conference in the Qatari capital.
