77 Senators Ask Condi to Press US' Arab 'Allies' to Cease anti-Israelism

Dozens of American senators sign letter calling for US pressure on 'friendly Arab states'. Former State Department officials warn Condoleezza Rice that failed peace conference in autumn 'could further set back situation in Middle East'

"As you step up American diplomatic actions and prepare for a future international meeting on the Arab-Israeli conflict, we believe it is essential that other key players in the Middle East also step up and meet their responsibilities. The success of such a meeting, and ultimately the peace process itself, will depend on the cooperation we receive from the larger Arab world, particularly from those Arab states with close relations with the United States who have not yet signed agreements with Israel," the letter said, hinting at states such as Saudi Arabia.
