Arab League's More Active Role
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
The Arab League has offered to run interference. The league has volunteered to play moderator between two warring Palestinian power parties, the Palestinian Authority who control the West Bank and Hamas who control Gaza.
Amir Moussa, Secretary General of the Arab League, told one of the leaders of Hamas in Cairo yesterday that "The Arab League is willing to host any Palestinian meetings to push forward national reconciliation efforts."
He continued: "There is no justification whatsoever for the continued Palestinian division." Moussa asserted that Arabs want to "unify Palestinian ranks ahead the current challenges."
The Arab League and Moussa have started to take a more active role in the happenings of the Middle East. In the past the Arab League has basically responded to issues.
The prime reason for the change now is that Amir Moussa wants to position himself as a Pan Arab leader, he wants to gain notoriety and help power his own presidential candidacy in Egypt.
