Arabs have 'nothing left to concede' if Israel spurns initiative

From UPI

A roundup of commentary from Arab newspapers April 19: An editorial in Saudi Arabia's Okaz said the "train" of the initiative had started to rumble forward after the Arabs had proved they are real "peace-seekers," desiring to end the Arab-Israeli conflict once and for all. "But the question is: Are the others serious in seeking peace? The others are not just Israel, which should be ready ... but all the other concerned parties, especially those who are addicted to" a biased stance, said the semi-official daily, in reference to the United States. The paper added that if Israel was neither interested, nor serious, nor ready now for a fair peace, the rest of the world should realize the Arabs "have nothing left to concede."
