A senior Arab League official on Tuesday criticized the so-called "Quartet" of Mideast peacemakers for failing to promote peace between the Arabs and Israel. Ahmed Beni Heli's remarks came a day before representatives of "Quartet" _ the United States, European Union, Russia and United Nations _ meet in Cairo to investigate efforts to restart the deadlocked Mideast peace. "Regrettably, it has failed to play any role and was prevented to advance the peace process," said Ben Heli. Ben Heli, the undersecretary-general of the Cairo-based league, said the "Quartet's failure to stand up to the Israeli attempts to abort all peace initiatives" was part of the reason it's failed to bring peace to the region.
