ARAB LEAGUE IN SPOTLIGHT: WHY IT SPEAKS WITH TWENTY-TWO DIFFERENT VOICES?

In the current situation in Palestine, the twenty-two member Arab League once again is under the spotlight of international relations experts who are eager to see if the organization could come up with a united stance towards the conflict. International observers versed in the Arab politics, perhaps, discern it too well that Arab countries could hardly get rid of their old mudslinging against each other when coming to find a common ground to protect Arab interests.
