The API offers a framework for a regional, comprehensive approach to peace that would end all conflicts and claims between Arab nations and Israel. The Qatari prime minister, speaking on behalf of an Arab League delegation, addressed what had been one of the major sticking points for Israel. In so doing, he brought the Arab position into alignment with the parameters outlined by President Obama in May 2011.
All 22 Arab nations signed the original API. All 57 Muslim nations endorsed it. Tzipi Livni and Yizchak Molho, Israel’s lead negotiators met with Secretary of State John Kerry last week about it.
This represents a major step forward toward achieving a two-state solution, and Jews around the world who care about Israel's Jewish and democratic future mustn't let the moment slip by.
