The Arab League believes that a new UN Security Council resolution endorsing Palestinian statehood has a better chance of winning passage now that the Obama administration is conducting a "reassessment" of its Middle East peace policies.
"There is an indication that the Americans are rethinking the Arab-Palestinian draft proposal for an end to the Israeli occupation that will be submitted to the Security Council," the head of the Arab League, Secretary-General Nabil El-Araby, told the Egyptian daily Al-Ahram over the weekend.
