Arab nations seek to block quartet report at UN | Daily Mail Online
The Daily Mail reports: "Arab nations are calling on the UN Security Council not to endorse a report aimed at reviving the Middle East peace process that the Palestinians see as biased in favor of Israel, the Palestinian envoy said Tuesday. The report by the Middle East quartet -- the European Union, Russia, the United Nations and the United States -- calls on Israel to halt settlement expansion and the Palestinians to stop inciting violence. Arab diplomats agreed during a recent meeting to try to block any move by the council to adopt a US-drafted statement backing the long-awaited report's recommendations, Riyad Mansour told reporters."

Comment: So, the Palestinians are seeking to subvert the Quartet, not realizing their allies in France and the EU are probably doing more for their cause than they are.  Since I'm not a fan of the French plan, I'm actually happy about this development.
