1. Israeli peace after war to Arabs

Having lived through that period I am very disturbed by the failure of Israeli, and other democracies to ignore totally the offer by Israel at that time to withdraw from all captured lands in exchange for a binding peace treaty, at that time there were no “settlements” that would have impeded the total withdrawal, Jerusalem was an open city, yet the Arab response to that magnanimous offer was the resolution contains in paragraph 3 what became known as "the three NO’S" of Arab-Israel relations at that time. 1. No peace with Israel 2. No recognition of Israel 3. No negotiations with Israel Text of the Resolution 1. The conference has affirmed the unity of Arab ranks, the unity of joint action and the need for coordination and for the elimination of all differences. The Kings, Presidents and representatives of the other Arab Heads of State at the conference have affirmed their countries' stand by an implementation of the Arab Solidarity Charter which was signed at the third Arab summit conference in Casablanca. 2. The conference has agreed on the need to consolidate all efforts to eliminate the effects of the aggression on the basis that the occupied lands are Arab lands and that the burden of regaining these lands falls on all the Arab States. 3. The Arab Heads of State have agreed to unite their political efforts at the international and diplomatic level to eliminate the effects of the aggression and to ensure the withdrawal of the aggressive Israeli forces from the Arab lands which have been occupied since the aggression of June 5. This will be done within the framework of the main principles by which the Arab States abide, namely, no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with it, and insistence on the rights of the Palestinian people in their own country When these three NO’S are changed by all Arabs and Moslems to a THREE YES’S, true peace talks will be held in earnest and maybe a final peaceful recognized borders can be agreed upon that will bring hope and peace to that region
