Arab League Secretary Amr Moussa has rejected Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's offer to meet with Arab leaders to discuss the Saudi Peace Initiative, Israel Radio reported overnight Friday. According to Moussa, Olmert's proposal from Petra last week to meet with leaders without set conditions, was a "trick" that "[the Arab League] has already been witness to in the past." Moussa, who was speaking at Jordan's National Finance Forum, said that to date, Israel has not given any answer that could be interpreted as an outstretched hand for peace. A serious answer, he said, could pave the road for negotiations.
