Aljazeera: "Arabs offer Israelis olive branch"

This refers to the "annual Arab League summit," currently meeting in Sudan:
A draft final communique, which is not expected to undergo substantial changes, reaffirms an Arab initiative of 2002 which offers Israel peace in exchange for withdrawal from land occupied in the Middle East war of 1967. Israel rejects the offer.
This is probably the text of the initiative in question. The reference to Resolution 194 is probably meant to assert some sort of "right of return" for Palestinians. So Israel is essentially being invited to self-destruct peacefully.
