Thanks But No Thanks

Former Saudi Ambassador to the the U.S., Turki al-Faisal, has a column in today's Washington Post entitled, "Peace for the Mideast:  How Our Plan Could Aid Barack Obama's Efforts."  What is this plan the Saudi's are urging President-elect Obama to adopt?  Here it is in a nutshell:  
The United States, the European Union, the Russian Federation and the United Nations must embrace the Arab initiatives and pressure Israel to do the same.
Bascially the Saudi "plan" involves blaming Israel for the problems in the Middle East, and forcing it to make a bunch of concessions, including withdrawal from East Jerusalem.  What are the Palestinians going to do to help achieve peace?  Apparently nothing.  That's what passes for a peace plan in Saudi Arabia.
