Arab League threatens countries that normalize ties with Israel

It's time to break out Rage Boy.

Standing alongside Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshaal at a press conference in Egypt, Arab League chairman Amr Moussa threatened Arab countries who take steps to normalize ties with Israel before Israel gives in to the Arab League's demands.
Arab League head Amr Moussa issued a warning Sunday to Arab countries to avoid normalizing ties with Israel until Israel gives in to the League's demands, which include a complete building freeze in Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria, and much of Jerusalem. Any country that warms its ties with Israel before Arab demands are met will face a “tough” response, Moussa said, speaking at a news conference in Egypt.

"If we discover that someone normalized ties with Israel, I believe the reaction across the Arab world would be very violent,” he clarified.

Moussa made it clear last Friday that the Arab League's demand for a building freeze includes all Jerusalem neighborhoods east of the 1949 armistice line. Among such neighborhoods are Pisgat Zeev, Ramat Eshkol, Neve Yaakov, Har Homa, French Hill and the Old City.

The League demands that Jews be forbidden to build in those areas, while Arab construction would be permitted throughout the city.

During Sunday's media briefing, Moussa accused Israel's government of being “stubborn.” Arab countries cannot be expected to recognize Israel without getting their demands met in return, he insisted.
Well, I hope you're not expecting me to tell you that the Obama administration asked 'allies' like Egypt and Saudi Arabia and Jordan to disavow those remarks. They have not.

What could go wrong?

Moussa and Maashal chose the wrong sides in Januari 09, when they sat with Iran, Syria during the Qatar conference. Egypt and Jordan didn`t attend.Nobody takes Moussa seriously anymore.

There is zero chance Israel will bow before the Arab League demands. We will be waiting for peace to arrive when the Messiah has come.
