First Ever Arab League Delegates in Jerusalem

Egyptian and Jordanian foreign ministers are visiting Jerusalem Wednesday and for the first time are representing the 22-member Arab League, which two weeks ago denied that the visit would be in its name.

The two ministers said they were offering the "hand of peace" to Israel, but they added conditions that Israel and the United States have rejected as impractical. They repeated the Arab League's insistence that Israel give up all of the land in Judea and Samaria that was restored to the Jewish state in 1967.
Egypt and Jordan are the only Arab League countries to have diplomatic relations with Israel.
