No Saudi Dinner or Peace

Bush was going to have a big state dinner for the king of Saudi Arabia on April 17th, but apparently Abdullah has backed out (Wash Post). Our good buddy over there also said the occupation of Iraq is an "illegitimate foreign occupation." The Arab states (except Libya) have been meeting in Riyadh to discuss Palestine, and Saudi Arabia's peace plan. Their plan would have Israel withdraw to the 1967 borders, and allow Palestinian refugees the right to return. Of course, then there would be more Palestinians in Israel than Israelis, so I doubt that will go through.
