ADL: Iraq report 'gets it wrong' on Arab-Israeli peace process

By Haaretz Service

The Anti-Defamation League on Thursday blasted the Iraq Study Group for
recommending the United States increase it involvement in the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict as part of its approach to stabilizing Iraq,
arguing there was no connection between the two issues.

"The Iraq Study Group gets it wrong when it comes to the Arab-Israeli
conflict. We reject the suggestion that there is a connection between finding
a solution to the war in Iraq and direct involvement of the U.S. in solving
the Arab-Israeli conflict based on the recommendations in the report," the ADL
said in a statement.

"The goal of resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict should stand on its own and
has always been a key objective of U.S. foreign policy. It would be a terrible
mistake to confuse the recent disintegration in Iraq with the decades-old
Arab-Israeli conflict," it added.

The report "prejudges the outcome of negotiations between Israel, the
Palestinians, Syria and Lebanon" and "waters down the international
community?s clear preconditions for any negotiations between the Palestinians
and Israel," the ADL said in its statement adding, "The report's specific
recommendations, such as the return of the Golan Heights to Syria, should be
left to final-status negotiations and not dictated to them by outside

The group also criticized the report for neglecting to call for a "total
rejection of a nuclear Iran, because a nuclear Iran would do more to
destabilize the region and undermine America?s interests than any other single

The ADL praised the report, however, for reiterating the "enduring American
commitment to its key ally in the region" and for "acknowledging the Israeli
desire for peace."
