The Arab League, which convened in Cairo at the end of last week, decided to consider proposals to reinstate the boycott on Israel. Syria went further, demanding that Arab countries break off all relations with Israel. This was the extent of their anti-Israel stance, however, and practical decisions were not made. The PA is understandably upset at the lack of support shown them by their Arab brethren. Its media reported quite negatively on the conference, claiming that the Arab countries caved in to American and British pressure. \"Arab support for the Palestinians is getting weaker and weaker,\" said the PA\'s Saeb Erekat.
