Envoys for the 22-nation Arab League have postponed their visit to Israel, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's office said Tuesday. The foreign ministers of Egypt and Jordan were slated to meet with Olmert and other officials on Thursday, but their visit has been put off until July 25, his office said. It did not give a reason for the delay. The visit would be the first to Israel of envoys of the Arab League, which has softened its hardline stance toward Israel in recent months in efforts to counter a growing Islamic fundamentalist influence in the Middle East.
